Carnival of The Crazy Hip Mamas #35

This week the carnival topic is: “Something I made that I was REALLY proud of…”. or “Something I tried to make that didn’t turn out quite right…”

Well, I guess I'll take the question of something I made that I was really proud of... and the answer is: my first quilt. I started taking a beginning quilting class a couple of years ago, and all I had was desire and all the books I had read. After six weeks, we were taught the basics, but I took a little longer. Binding continues to thwart me. But, I 'gotter done' as they say. Now if I could just finish something else???

Great quilt, I love the colors and fabric!

Binding was a big problem for me until I watched over and over a segment on Simple Quilts. Alex showed how she does binding and I finally got it.

What a beautiful quilt!

I pieced together a baby quilt for my youngest brother when I was 8 but one of my mom's friends helped me with the finishing.

Beautiful! I'd love to have more time to quilt (I've done just one small baby quilt). I love the colors you selected and the pattern. Your work is beautiful.

That's pretty, and very impressive for a first quilt.
