So in April, we were to figure out how big we were making the quilt, material and then figure the size of each square piece, batting piece and then how many of those squares in each row horizontally and vertically.
Next month, May, I was out of town in DC, but we were to start sewing an "X" on the front peice, back peice and batting in the middle.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, this is probably only like the 3rd thing I have attempted to sew in my whole life. Hence the blog post name, First 4 Friday. So now that I got all the "X" sewed I was on a roll and continued on without waiting for our June gathering. I sewed 1 row together at a time and that is the point I am at currently.
I hope to have this quilt completed by the end of the weekend. Will update as I go. I am glad this quilt is a little forgiving as you can totally tell I am not one that sews.
I want to see what your first attemps where at things. Please share!
