I am slowly working my way up the quilting totem pole. I am getting a good feel for piecing blocks together, and now I have entered batting territory. Exciting times! My first fully quilted project was a set of coasters. I made them for my mom for Mother’s Day, and now that she’s gotten them in the mail, I can show them to you.
They are totally imperfect, mostly because I can’t be bothered with excessive measuring and am still mastering the art of sewing in a straight line, but if you can’t send imperfect coasters to your mom, who can you send them to? She’s the one who taught me that imperfections only add character!
This was a really fun and totally approachable project for a beginning quilter. Now we move boldly forward to…a laptop case! I’m really excited for that one. And, a small programming note: Thank you all so much for your sweet comments over the past few days! I am woefully behind on responding to your wonderful kindness, but I am plotting a catch-up session and super looking forward to it.
