Secret Christmas Sewing Revealed

LillieQuilt

I mentioned a couple times that I had some secret sewing project that I was working on as a gift. Well, now that I've given out my gifts for this Christmas (well, most of them), I can reveal was I was making. It's my first quilt! I decided to make my sister a quilt with pictures of Lillie, her dog on it. I really am happy about how it turned out. I went simple for the first time with design and quilting, but I will have to try something a little more complicated soon!

Since it was my first time, I wasn't sure about how the size would turn out. So, it ended up being about a crib size, but I'm ok with quality over quantity.

At first I sort of dreaded making it, but as I got going and it started taking form, it wasn't that bad of an endeavor. I still hate cutting out the fabric, but who really likes that?!

Very nice!! I don’t mind cutting fabric as long as it’s done with a rotary cutter and mat!
