This will be my very first time participating in the Bloggers Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side.
This past spring I read many of the posts of participants, but having never made a quilt in my life, I only drooled over other peoples quilts, which was a lot of fun!
Shortly after that, I made my first quilt: the Mod Sampler (pattern by Elizabeth Hartman).
It is far from perfect, but I learned so much while making this quilt!
I was to scared to do any free motion quilting on this one, seeing as I had never quilted anything before, so I stuck with 'simple' straight lines. UGH! NOT so simple...
So I also learned a lot about quick and efficient seam ripping.
But taking it out and starting over was so worth it.
I love the end result, and so do my kids! Who cares about perfection anyways?!
