1  Color Bars | First Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by silentlu on: November 03, 2010 07:12:18 PM
Hi Smiley I think this is my first post, I've been a lurker for years.

Last Christmas, I wanted to give my boyfriend a really nice gift. Hes a video editor and owns his own production company (I work there too Wink ), so I came up with the idea for a color bar quilt! Brilliant planminus the fact that Ive never made a quilt before. So this is my first quilt and I really didn't know what I was doing. It's not bad, considering I didnt have a rotary blade (and didn't know I was supposed to use one). I tried to iron the fabric to the correct size and then cut with scissors. Unfortunately, this didnt go so well and I ended up with various sized squares and some color bars ended up shorter than the others; so I had to improvise. I didnt quite get it finished by Christmas. I just handed the top to him and told him this was his present. I was surprised when he didnt know what it was at first; But he loved it when he figured it out. Smiley
