My Very First Quilt Ever



My daughters are members of a girls’ virtue club at our parish church. Some of the girls were learning to sew and made “friendship” quilts. Each girl brought several different fabrics to a meeting, and they all swapped and traded so they could each make a quilt that had fabrics from everyone.



IMG00241My youngest two daughters wanted to do it too, but since they were not old enough for this project within the group, I decided to make them a “sisters” quilt. The two of them each chose some fabrics and how to arrange them, so the finished project was designed by both of them. The back is a soft fleece material.




I followed along as another Mom taught the group how to put a quilt together. I had been sewing most of my life but had never made a quilt before. This was an easy design to assemble because the smaller squares of fabrics are simply sewn on top of the larger squares, with raw edges showing. I normally would not allow myself to leave raw edges (that perfectionism!) but I followed along and my girls love the quilt!
