Last January I took a quilting class at my local Jo-Ann Fabric store. Fast forward one year later and I’m pleased to announce that my maiden voyage into quilting is complete.
- Pattern: Easy Four-Patch from Better Homes and Gardens 1-2-3 Quilt
- 100% cotton fat quarters from JoAnn Fabric
- Finished size: 57″ x 70″
The most time consuming steps were picking the fabric, cutting it into squares and ironing the strips so that the seams would lay the right way.
Other than that, it was just a matter of machine sewing the pieces together.
It took me a little while to figure out the best way to create a quilt sandwich. I highly recommend using Tailor Quilt Basting Spray. Be sure to spread your quilt out on a large flat surface for this step.
I’ve definitely been bitten by the quilting bug and can’t wait to start another one. Do you quilt? What’s your favorite pattern? What would you recommend for my next project?
