Quilting - I said it would never happen......

I've always said that I don't quilt. I don't quite get it or the obsession with it.

Wiser women than me just gave a knowing smile and said "not yet....", "you will...."


The urge has been there for some time. I've looked at the quilts in my local fabric haven (or is that heaven ??) Amitie - yes I am lucky aren't I - and am in awe of their skill.

So I jumped in head first on Saturday. Jenny at Amitie was divine and helped with fabrics and heaps of tips as I have no idea what I'm doing. She's so patient!

It's all cut & stitched together with the help of Kiddie no. 1 - it's for his bed. And we loved doing it.

Now to start the hand quilting and I'm feeling very nervous..... have I chosen the right colours? Can I do it properly? Will I finish it before he gets his drivers license ?

Any advice from super quilters would be greatly appreciated.

Watch this space for the great quilt update ...
