I love quilts. I love anything handmade, but I don't have much talent in the sewing department. I can stitch a straight line, but that's pretty much it.
But I have a very talented friend, who loves to sew and makes many quilts.. She even embroiders them and makes some as gifts for friends or family. I asked her to help me with a quilt I wanted to make for my bedroom. Which, by the way, said would be a cinch. However, it was not a cinch for me. As a matter of fact, it was tedious and yes I am going to say it, boring. However, I had already bought all of the material and forged ahead with my friend's generous help. In trade, I made her nice home cooked meals and desserts.
I love the quilt, it turned out beautifully. But, I will never attempt to make another quilt, or sew anything else for that matter. :)
Here is my one and only handmade quilt! Thank you Laura for
your tireless efforts.
Each of the squares began as 3 foot long strips. All need to be sewn together (this I did), and then cut into exact 10 x 10 squares (which I did not do).
After we laid them out, we decided they needed to be framed in an off white material, or it would not come together. Needless to say, I was just the apprentice in all of this process.
When it was nearing the finish, Laura decided to add prairie points. They added the perfect touch of uniqueness and a contemporary flair, which I loved.
