Finally Finished!

I finally finished the very first quilt I ever started.  I took a community ed class a few (ahem) years ago.  (Before the Blue One was born.)  I finished the top shortly after the class, and I even had it quilted within a couple of months.  Then I almost immediately sewed the binding onto the front of it.  Then it sat.  And sat.  And sat.  And eventually I hung it on a hanger in a closet.  And it hung, and hung, and hung.

Well, I sucked it up and finished the binding with the machine this week.  I had originally planned to hand sew it, but that’s likely what left it hanging in a closet for a few years.  Best intentions, right?

I have no clue what fabric it is, or what pattern it is – I can’t find the instructions from the class.  I remember it came together rather quickly.  I also remember this was the first time I learned about chain piecing, which makes things go so much faster.  It’s lap size.
First Ever Front

The back is flannel:
First Ever Back


If anyone knows what pattern it is, please let me know – I may try to hunt it down again.



About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

    Congrats on striking one more UFO off your to-be-completed list! Looks just right for a winter evening snuggle on the sofa.

      Hi Tara – thanks for stopping by!
      This is actually the first quilt that I’ve finished that I get to keep! The other finishes have been gifts. And with that flannel back, I can’t wait to use it this winter!

I want to hear from you...
