First quilt, done!

I made my first quilt! It definitely has mistakes, most of which are obfuscated in my photos. I learned a lot from my mistakes:

  • don’t baste a quilt with straight pins 🩸
  • many safety pins!
  • quilt in one direction to avoid tension lines
  • choose a backing fabric that matches your thread for first projects
  • match seams, duh!
  • measure three times before cutting
  • buy a squaring ruler and then use it

All that said, I’m happy with the result and look forward to snuggling under it for the rest of the winter!
