Quilting – As seen on Pinterest

Knowing that I was going to need to make a quilt and that it was time to quite putting it off, I searched Pinterest for a new pattern. I knew that I wanted to try something new but I had no idea what I wanted to try. I found this.

I figured it wasn’t too hard but thought it would be cool to try something like this for my first pieced together quilt. I normally just use squares for my quilts, which I love doing but I knew this would be a challenge.

Actually, this wasn’t too bad, it just took a lot of sewing. The cutting wasn’t bad, the laying pieces out wasn’t bad, the sewing wasn’t bad it just took more time than what I expected it to take.  I also probably should have thought about how I was going to quilt it before I started the whole thing too. It didn’t quite work out the way I thought it would but it was ok because I didn’t have to rotate the quilt as many times under the machine.

How did mine turn out? Well, a little different than the one in the picture but it was good inspiration.
