I Love to quilt. I am not that good at it but I love doing it and giving the quilts away. This is a quilt I made my daughter for Christmas last year.

Skeel, That is a work of art! It reminds me of warmth on a cold winter night in childhood.. and the love of my dear Mother.

Beautiful! I have just recently gotten my first sewing machine, and have really enjoyed some basic projects like curtains and tablecloths. How hard is it to jump into quilting. Did you teach yourself, or did you take a class?

Sewing the top part was easy since there are patterns in all kinds of books but putting together the quilt with the backing and then actually quilting was harder for me. But again there are some great books that can teach you all about it. I basically just taught myself. If I can do it...anyone can :)

Lovely. I have never been able to sew well. :( I have quilts that my grandmother handstitched during WWII. I treasure them so very much...so whoever receives this is going to always cherish it. Awesome work! k

Beautiful quilt! I just now saw this thread. I also quilt.

Dragon - there are various strip techniques now that can make intricate designs very quickly. It is called "stripping". :lol: Eleanor Burns has a great book out named "Still Stripping After All These Years".
