Quilting!

on October 26, 2014

I’ve long admired quilts. I think they are homey and peaceful and look really cool. Some have made me do a double-take, like
“The Sun Sets on Sunbonnet Sue”
. (Warning, some of the images/themes are a bit unsettling.)

I’ve sewn small items: pillowcases, some skirts, I did a shift dress a while back. I’m starting to do more, but one thing I’ve always wanted to do is quilt. So today I took a class! And this is what I came up with:

I know some of the triangles are waaay off (there is a learning curve with using the rotary cutter, ba-dum-bum), but I was happy I got the seams nice and neat. And check out the fun cat print!

Overall, I found the measuring, sewing, cutting and general precision very therapeutic. My mind tends to bounce all over the place sometimes, and things like this help me focus and relax. And it was fun! I will keep this as my practice square, but I’m on the lookout for a pattern for my very first quilt.
