This quilt is not perfect. This quilt doesn't know what it means. And it says - I'm proud of it! And I say - this is my dear, lovely first quilt I made.
As most things it took me a while to have it done. The blocks were made during P2 Patchwork Quilt Along. There was one block per week and somehow I kept the pace, so this piece went quite well. But then, as I decided to make the quilt a bit differently I slowed down ... really, really slowed down. Anyway, it's done now and covers bed in one room.
I'm truly happy with this quilt. I learnt a lot when doing this and I know it's something I enjoy. I thought to make this post as a kind of summary with the mistakes I made. It'll be sort of list "what a beginner can do wrong" :). I'll also be able to check one day if I improved my skills at all or keep repeating the same faults.
So here it is:
- maybe because of no expierence, maybe because I changed inch to cm but in the end the blocks weren't exactly the same. So, I had to cut some more than they should be
- definitely not enough safety pins to keep all the layers tightly. This is how it ends with folds:
- no expierence in moving such big fabric when sewing. The rubber gloves helped a lot but still the length of stitches varies
- some lines that should be straight were not so in fact...
