My First Quilt


I was inspired to make this after watching an effective demonstration at Houston Quilt Festival 2003. This girl whacked, shuffled and sold me on the kit. So I bought the ruler, the pattern and not enough fabric to do it. Talk about proud when completed! We use it daily and love it. Though, the colors are very strange. Mom said "It's a Mardis Gras quilt!" Yeah, yeah that's what I was aiming for, sure. Self Question: Why do I always put purple and green together? It's also a combo of really cheap fabric cottons with quality pieces. And for some reason I used purple and green flannel for the sashing? Oh well, it all gets better from here!

These comments were BEFORE I figured out how to moderate comments. Once those restrictions were in place - no more comments! - DAMNIT! Then came the rings and it's all good
