Make Monday – First Quilt

For starters – I know that going into a quilt shop to just “look” is stupid.  It’s like an alcoholic having one drink.  My bf’s Mother cheerfully takes me into the shop last weekend knowing it will not (ever!) be a quick stop for me to “look” around (thank you KR).  My just looking turned into the purchase of 2 Kaffe Fasset 6″ Earth Charmpacks.  I was armed also with a disappearing nine-patch free pattern.  Home I go to piece them together.  Cut them up.  Then what?

I return to the store 3-days later with my pithy stack of wild-colored squares and decide sashing is my best bet to bring it all together!  Overall I’m happy with the progress.

I watched my Mom quilt for my entire childhood.  It was nice to just unleash all of her knowledge and patience thru this project.  This is my first attempt at a quilt top.  I didn’t really realize I knew how to do all of this.  I’m excited to get it done to plan and start another…

Happy day – FRM
