1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Black Flag quilt on: August 28, 2012 08:04:51 PM
I made this for a friend's birthday. She loved it. I loved it...err...after it was completed.

The top, made from sheets and the border was done with thrifted fabric

the back, made from old sheets

Thanks all.

This quilt measures about 4ft by 5ft, so it's really a lap quilt.

I did machine quilt it after buying the mysterious walking foot I heard so much about. What a lifesaver that little thing is!
I also did the "stitch in the ditch" method because I didn't know what else to do with it; also, some of the "ditches" aren't so even, so sometimes my stitch gets crazy. I'm proud of it regardless Smiley

I decided that I would made a quilt without any former quilt training. I scanned a lot of message boards (especially this one) and some youtube tutorials for all my advice. I probably broke every rule along the way, but I like how it turned out.

This was my first go at putting it together

But then I wanted more...

Here is where I ended up (Front...obviously)

And this is the back

It's also worth mentioning that I didn't want to spend a lot of money on my first quilt in the event that it turned out FUBAR, so instead, I used all thrifted fabric for the top and the black backing is a $5 sheet. Total, this was a $15 quilt, tops.

You're all so talented and I hope to eventually make quilts half as awesome as those I've seen here.
