I finished my first quilt ever for Oh Fransson’s quilt along! This was so much fun to make, and I love how it turned out!
I’ve decided to add this quilt to Park City Girl’s Quilt Festival! What a great idea! So, in light of that, I’m updating this post by adding the “story” of this quilt.
I think that there will always be something special about one’s first quilt. The Mod Sampler was my first quilt. I have been inspired by quilting for awhile now, whether it was living vicariously through blogs and magazines or admiring my friend’s lovely creations, I knew that there must one day come a time when I tried my hand out at quilting. When Oh, Fransson decided to sponsor a Quilt Along, I knew this was the perfect opportunity for me.
Although I didn’t follow her time schedule exactly, I found her instructions and resources to be so easy to follow and enjoyable. Once I finished this quilt I had such a strong sense of accomplishment! It still makes me so happy to see it draping over my couch. I already have plans for my second quilt, and I know that this was only the beginning of a wonderful friendship between myself and quilting.
I hope you enjoy my quilt and can find some inspiration out of it!
I can tell that this will be the first of many quilts to come!
