My First Quilt

My husband got me a new sewing machine last year and I keep thinking I should make so etching. Don't get me wrong, I really wanted a new sewing machine, but didn't have any projects to use it. Then we went to visit his friends, Ann and Don,in Michigan. They have an awesome log cabin on a little lake and Ann makes beautiful quilts. I've always been intrigued by quilting but never tried it.

When we got back from that trip I looked around for classes and lucked out - a shop near our house offered beginner's classes on Friday mornings and I happen to be off Fridays during the summer!

The fabrics I chose go with our family room. I loved making this quilt and love the way it came out. Look for more quilts from me in the future!
