Project 25: Finished quilt and lessons learned

July 18, 2011

My first quilt

It’s done! I finished the last of the stippling and put the binding on last night. I love it! There are loads of mistakes, but I found that this particular pattern was very forgiving. Now I made a quilt and I can definitely imagine making more. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.

Lessons learned:
– Things probably aren’t as hard as you think they will be, especially if you take them one step at a time.
– My sewing machine can do all sorts of things besides the one or two stitches I tend to use.
– A good effort is better than perfection.
– You never know if you can do something until you try!

Yay quilt!


  1. It looks really nice!

  2. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, droooooooool! LOVE it!

  3. Awesome. Like literally: I am in AWE.

  4. Well done! It’s beautiful! And you’re absolutely right — finished is better than perfect! A very wise lady told me that many years ago, and it really set me free. 🙂 Kindest regards, Dianne B. in England

  5. any one have a pattern for this?? I LOVE it – and would like to make it!! kenwood492000@yahoo.com
