My First and Last Quilt
I call this my first and last quilt. It was a craft idea from The Old Schoolhouse Magazine Christmas issue a couple of years ago. It is a lap quilt for my grandmother. So it’s about 4’ x 4’. In concept it is pretty easy. But I learned a couple of things:
1) I am not a precise cutter
2) I do not do well with precise seam allowances
3) Quilting involves all sorts of precise cutting and seam allowances.
I know it is a little presumptuous to call it my first and last quilt. I’ve seen another pattern I’d like to try someday. I live in fear of becoming a quilting fabric collector. (Yeah, I’m talking about you, Laura and Irene).
