    This is the very first quilt I made 2 years ago. I finally finished it last night for my DH and DS. I bought the cheapest material I could find (top, backing, batting, pattern for a total of $65). I had no idea what I was doing but wanted to try to make a quilt. I've made 10 since then and haven't looked back! You definitely learn something new with each project. I try to challenge myself and throw in one new technique with each one.

    Sandra, I do the same thing. Try something new with each project. Recently made a baby quilt with prairie points. They were so much fun and really made the quilt special.
