I've been wanting to quilt for a long time, but felt a bit (a lot) intimidated by it. Yesterday I bit the bullet and took a quilting workshop at the local fabric store.
The ladies were awesome, I had a great time and I feel like I can maybe make a quilt now!

I started small, but I have big plans!

Beautiful! The colors and pattern are great together. The hard lines of the design and the soft colors. Smiley

No, it was a pattern with two templates. There was a lot of cutting.... there are 48 points, counting the background blue (which has 32), but it was a lot easier than it looks! Except sewing the bits on the edge around the circle of the pillow was a bit tricky.  Cheesy
