My first quilt...


It's a mini quilt...but could be used as a hotpad I suppose. Why do I always think everything has to have a purpose? It can just be a work of art, right? I am definitely inspired to make another larger quilt.
There's Velvet stepping over it, as I try to snap a photograph. We picked her up yesterday, after having stayed overnight to be spayed. She seems to be back to normal, playing and jumping around. She is now 5 pounds. Shaved belly. And a little incision that is healing up already. We'd gone to the vet last week and it would've cost an additional $150 to have her spayed, but at the UCAN clinic downtown I paid just $35. It really encourages people to spay or neuter their animals when it's affordable.

Very cute!! I love that Russian doll fabric :) I'm obsessed with matryoshka dolls.

I love it! What size is it? I have been wanting to learn to do some quilting, but I am so in up to my neck in my knitting and other sewing projects, which I barely have time for right now. Maybe during lent I will find the time :) I have couple friends from the knitting group who have been making baby blankets with panels of flannel, which they sew together and then wash so they fray just a little, but they look SO cozy!

I really want to get into patchwork and quilting, but it always seems so overwhelming! Maybe a small project like yours is the best way to start!

I like your quilt very much! You are smart to make your first quilt a small one. For years I made -- and actually still have several in the works -- patchwork potholders, because it was possible to work on them in little snatches such as busy mothers have, and end up completing a project! I don't know how young mothers manage to sew bed-sized quilts. It amazes me.
