My First and Last Quilt

Pin It
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).
