Amy's First Quilt
We have been quilting together for about 7 years -- sharing inspiration, equipment, and fabrics! It took us a long time to learn how to appreciate what colors go together, how to choose darker fabrics to be more dominant features, and how to make sure that each and every project is unique and remarkable.
I want to share here my first quilt! This quilt, made for my oldest daughter, Sari, is a single bed quilt (about 68 X 86 inches), using large floral prints. The flowers on the borders and in the corners are appliqued.
Sari has placed the quilt as a design element on her living room couch and it gives me great satisfaction to see it there!
