    Big Moment!

    About to start piecing my first ever bed size quilt, a gift for my niece! Wish me luck, she may be sleeping under a quilt the size of a placemat if things don't go as planned, LOL. I have only done a table runner and a small QAYG baby quilt. Hope I am not biting off more than I can chew!


    You have to start somewhere right. Here are the fabrics I am using.Name:  yellow black.jpg

    I am using a pattern I found on Pinterest. Very similar to a pattern I purchased to used with just slight differences. Just out in my 1/4 piecing foot and ready to go! Lots of first for me, I have spent a lot of time here reading and decided to brave it.

    ummmmm I do hope that you have more fabric yardage than that or it will be a really really small bed quilt. like for a baby doll.
    when life gets you down go and talk with a little kid. They will help you work out even the worst problems with their simple logic.

    I was not sure what color of thread to use for piecing, I am going with a pale ivory/yellow color. What do you think?

    Yes I have 5 of these fat quarter packs and some additional yardage. I have not fully decided on backing yet, but I have a piece I am trying on for size, LOL. Seeing how it grows on me as I quilt.
