This past Sunday my mom came over and taught me how to make my first quilt – I’m ecstatic and hooked!
This is a nine patch quilt designed by Cindi Rosenberger, made with Laura Ashley fabric. It was so interesting learning the little tips and tricks and I had many “ah ha!” moments. It was quite fun.
This quilt will be donated to Quilts for Kids, whose mission is to “transform discontinued, unwanted and other fabrics into patchwork quilts that comfort children with life-threatening illnesses and children of abuse.” The story of how they got started is really fascinating and not only do they help children but they keep discontinued fabrics out of the landfills. There will be more quilting in my future!
