This is my first quilt. It's fairly simple, great big blocks of fabrics. It will probably be one of those quilts that bothers me so much in ten years that I have to take it all apart. or throw it out in a fit of rage. It is wonky and poorly quilted. The binding is all, well, wonky. But now I love it love it love it!
I was too impatient to pre-wash the fabrics (one of my many faults) also, I like the look of antique shrunken quilts the only problem that I didn't foresee was that the backing is half red. I think that my whole quilt will end up being a bit purple. Also, I used a cotton batting (also not preshrunk) to add to the antique-y,cozy, wrinkled-y look. I will post pics when I get around to washing it.
ETA: I washed it. It survived. It is now perfect! YAY!
