This is the first quilt I actually pieced together (knowing absolutely nothing about quilting, and barely knowing how to use my sewing machine). I did the pattern myself and I do like the way that turned out. I definitely learned a lot from this piecing - 1. how important cutting is; 2. using stretchy material is not a good idea; and 3. planning is REALLY important.
The quilting working much better than my first attempt. The quilt actually lays flat and there are only a couple snags on the back. I used a fusible fleece for the batting. I must say I love the pattern! I may make a duplicate once I refine my skills a little!
