I have been wanting to learn to quilt for some time now, but I have to admit I am not too keen on sewing machines! They scare me, or used to I should say. I took the plunge in August and purchased my second sewing machine. The first one I owned for over thirteen yrs came out to play maybe three times, so I got rid of her.
I have to thank the Best neighbor in the world for teaching me how to quilt. I am by no means an expert, but I think I've got the basics down, and I have some machine confidence now. She was so patient with me, and taught me some valuable sewing lessons to keep me from making huge mistakes in the future.
My first quilted project is the runner below, I wanted to start with something small, runners are perfect for the beginner! I wanted a project that wasn't going to be overwhelming, and easy to actually finish. Because lets face it folks, if you take on a big job it will linger. Hope you enjoy!
Thanks for peeking in,
