My first quilted item is finished, and I'm rather chuffed with the end result.
This was my test piece, trying out my shiny new Christmas present rotary cutter, testing different ways of piecing and using different threads for hand quilting. I've learned a lot, unpicked a fair bit and stopped frequently - just for a squidge.
I only used fabrics from my stash and an invisible zip I already had (black, sadly - but you can hardly see it) and I am one happy lady.
Now I'm planning an actual quilt, lap sized I think, as I'm still a beginner.
Lots of wonderful quilts can be found over at Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday. I'm off to be inspired...
