My First Quilt

Happy Veterans’ Day! 11-11-11
During the last few months, I have been taking a “Quilting 101” class at
My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe
It has been so much fun – and I have learned so much!
The class was four hours once a week, for six weeks.
Each week we’d learn something new in class, and then we’d have to go home and do more for homework.  So what we made in class turned out to be a cute little quilt, like a table-topper… and what we did for our homework turned out to be a beautiful lap-sized quilt.
Ready to see how mine turned out?
Here’s my table topper:
 I love how the teacher of the class taught us how to make six different types of quilt blocks.
The teacher even helped me piece together my scraps to make the back of my table topper!
 As you can see, it’s almost as big as my whole table.
My little boy loved it though – a quilt just his size.
And now… Here is my lap quilt…

This time I used a coordinating flannel for the back!
Don’t you just love the machine quilting that was done on it?

I think this quilt is the perfect size to cuddle with.. and of course my little boy think so too…
So there you have it – my first quilt!  Now I can officially say that I am a quilter.
