1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / First Patchwork Baby Quilt on: September 09, 2009 04:14:30 PM
I am a beginning sewer and just finished my first quilt - a patchwork for my nephew due in just about a month.

No new fabric was purchased (except for the binding). Each squares comes from an old clothing item from a family member ranging from his dad's old denim shirt to his big sister's bedroom curtain to his aunt's shrunken blouse. Fabrics chosen were all similar in cool blue tones. I used a rotary blade to cut up the squares:

The finished quilt measures about 3' x 3 1/2'. I really love how the different fabric comes together to look casual and whimsical. I never thought I would love quilting but I do and will definitely quilt again. The next quilt I'd like to try is a big bedspread size quilt.




Thanks for checking out my creation!
