This was my first quilt. And my only quilt. I didn't really have to learn a lot. Just cut a bunch of rectangles, sew them into strips, and then sew white strips in between and around. I really enjoyed making this quilt.
Yesterday, the ladies group at church (Relief Society) had a quilt group night. I was a bit nervous for a couple reasons.
1. Since we've moved to Wisconsin, I've found a job. My husband watches both kids while I am at work all day and leaving for two more hours in the evening would be kind of unfair to him.
2. I haven't quilted a lot. Much less in a group setting.
We (Tiffany and I) arrived and we were the first one's there. What a relief. I didn't have to show everyone all at once that I am still a novice! Tiffany and Laurie (the lady in charge) started talking blocks. Way over my head.
We were learning a Woven Twist Block. A whaty-what what? We learned how to do a partial seam and this is how my block turned out:
Its a little ske-wompy, but I was mostly happy with how it turned out. I used fabric from my stash. (you might notice the brown fabric is the binding in the first quilt).
We were supposed to make two blocks. One for a charity quilt with blocks from everyone from the group that goes all onto a quilt and then to a place like a hospital or a red cross. I only was able to finish one block, but I plan on making more and putting them all together into a quilt.
I don't think that all my fabric is going to match because I don't have much of this left and because I'm hoping not to have to buy any for the quilt blocks each month.
