My First Quilt

Its' been quite a long time since I have written a post on my blog, I must say this year I have been busy working on several projects.  I have never work on a quilt before, and since I am in the Sewing Guild I decide to attempt a mystery quilt in which we were given instructions this pass January, its been along lesson in understanding all the terms and techniques that go into quilting, the key thing that I have learned is how important squaring your blocks are and that 1/4 inch seam allowance. I still have a lot of work to do with this quilt, its still on my design board and I am working on how to make the this scrappy look work on this mystery quilt. I have been busy making aprons, I love aprons, I done a few for Shawnees Flirty Apron Swap, and make an apron out of cut denim in legs from this mystery bag apron challenge this pass April, that was a lot of fun!
