Okay, so here's the story. Our basement recently flooded, because of all the snow and heavy rainfall, eek! Anyway, we had to gut the whole thing, including our sewing room
(( So my mom and I have been going through all of our stuff to clean it out to make room for new and more fun things!
In my bin of old fabric, I found a couple of quilts I made probably 8 or 9 years ago, when i was first learning. I made them when i was about 9 or 10 (I've been sewing for a looong time...for me, at least)
I just used old scraps of my mom's fabric, the stuff is probably 25 or 30 years old by now! gosh!
Anyway, I just thought it would be fun to share how I started. I learned how to sew by quilting. I haven't made an actual quilt since probably 8th grade. Now i make mostly clothes and purses. but i am dyeing to make more quilts...SOOOONNN!!!
ooookaay...now that you've totally lost interest...Here they are!! Laughing is totally permitted, and even encouraged, lol!!
This first one is pretty pathetic!! haha...it's about 9"X9". It is also super super ugly!! ack!
Here's a close up: you can almost, kind of see my sad attempt at stitching in the ditch...it's all over the place, and not in the ditch at all! lol
This is the back...as you can see, i was *super awesome* at stitching in straight lines, lol:
Here is the second one, it's about 13"X13"...princess-angel bears..? I didn't even try to make them face the same way! lol
Another sad attempt at stitching in the ditch:
Close up of the fabric:
Hahahahahah!!! that poor side!!
Hopefully I'll make some more, much better, quilts soon!! I've been nonstop fabric shopping for like a month now, finding projects to do in my new sewing room!! My sewing room has to get put back together first
Comments and cruel jokes :p welcome!
