For Christmas my husband and I finally decided to get a new sewing machine but in true fashion for our family did not get it until January after we were sure it was the machine for us!
I have been wanting to get back more into sewing and hopefully into quilting. I had a snow day and a tutorial online and decided it was the project for me! The link I followed is here: My Spare Time – she has all sorts of tutorials for sewing I am sure this won’t be the last one I follow.
So first I read her directions and I had my husband look over them too as I am not a highly skilled seamstress this is new territory for me. Then I went to the local fabric store and was happy to be making my purchases on Educator Discount Weekend! First I laid out my fabric.
Then I ironed and sewed the blocks together. I have never quilted so I am sure I made mistakes but I can tell you this if I can do it anybody can!
I actually had fun making this and the day flew by so fast! Thanks to my husband’s help too!
Although I don’t know how the orange would have looked on the bottom. I used a nursery flannel for the bottom – this project did not call for a filler but I may try a light one next time just to make the blanket a little more snugglie!
