Quilt Pictures :)

This is the quilt I've been working on, the pictures are just of the top part.  I still have to put a backing on and stuff it.  I had some squares left over so I've also started making a sham kind of pillow to match the quilt. I'll put some photos of the pillow on when I get it finished... I ran out of thread

Quilting Craze

I started my first quilt on Friday and I'm almost done! I've been going at it like a mad woman over the weekend and it's coming along nicely if I do say so myself. For my first effort I figured it would be best to go small and simple, so I've just made a kind of throw quilt that you would use for the couch. I was at the thrift store with my mother, Staar, and there was this really interesting material there so I picked it up figuring it would be good for something and ta da I've made it into a quilt with little cost to me. So a little hint is to check out thrift stores first for your sewing and craft projects, not only is it cost effective but it's also nice to recycle :) I will have some pictures up later this week of the finished product.
