    My First Quilt!

    This is a picture of my first entire quilt. It's a Ryan McKenna pattern, and I ended up with 3 months to make it since it was for my Aunt in Australia. We both ended up going to my nieces wedding in New Zealand, so I hand carried to her.
    I just had the best time making it and quilting it myself. I did want her to be able to use it, so I prewashed the fabric and blanket stitched around all the pieces besides fusing them. She is an owl collector and and cried when I gave it to her. She knows I just started to quilt, so that was encouraging! I am disabled and can only sit at the machine for short periods of time, but I read all I can and belong to the local Guild. I am looking forward to becoming proficient at home machine quilting,. I wish all the practicing I do in my head counted for experience lol!



    My helper is at the end!!
