My first quilt

Hello! Today it was sunny. I arranged my quilts and want now to show you the first quilt I made. It was few years ago, I found pattern from Internet, I had some fabric and I was ready to take my first step to the world of the quilts. I knew sewing from my school time and fortunately I had brought my sewing machine from Finland when I got married! I made quilting by hand, I didn’t know actually what was the right quilting but I tried to make tiny,tiny stitches.. And I finished this quilt in very short time, I was so enthusiastic with my new hobby!! The binding is quite thick, I didn’t have an idea about basting! I wanted to do the quilt for my youngest daughter and because I didn’t have a lot of fabric I tried to make it larger with binding!!! Now it is a little bit short for my daughter but she still loves to be covered with it.

Here are some pictures about the quilt. The light was doing some tricks , I told it was a sunny day!



and Gourgour cat loves the camera…


Though it was sunny and warm today, there is something which reminds me about autumn:



In my last post I showed you the star from my project. Now this star has become larger….


I hope you to have lovely October and thank you for reading my posts and thank you for your nice comments! Anneli

  1. Hi Anneli! This is really beautiful quilt! Great pattern – I would love to make that and the colours are also beautiful! I’m flying home today and looking for to start again sewing and also to fix the house after the busy summer. Hugs! x Teje


    • Teje kiitos kommentistasi! En edes muista mistä olen tuon mallin katsonut!! Itsekin pidän siitä, sitä katsellessa jää siihen koukkuun! Hyvää ja turvallista kotimatkaa, sinulla on varmaan ihania aarteita matkalaukussasi ja jään innolla odottamaan mitä niistä taiteilet. xAnneli
