Easy Quilting


Hello everyone,
Have you ever thought about making a quilt, but have no idea where to begin?  My dear friend Linda from high school asked me if I would teach her how to make a quilt. I was so excited and I wanted to make it FUN and easy for her.  I thought what would be the easiest quilt to make for someone that’s not as experienced in sewing.  Then I remembered my very first quilt I made in 1978 (in high school). I made it out of 5 inch squares, which was very easy, just sewing them together.  Now, you know me, Material Girl – I have all kinds of material, and in all sizes. So, I went into my stash of material and cut twelve 8 inch squares and thought we can use them - PERFECT! 

Linda came over, we had lunch, and then got right into quilting… I had her cutting sewing and ironing.  OMG, what fun we had – It was like the old high school days again…  We talked about everything and before we knew it, the time had flown by. We did manage to finish quilting the quilt… But, we still need to put the binding on.  We’ll get together sometime this week to finish it. 

Take a look at the pictures – She did an amazing job!!!

 
 Here is the label I made to put on the back...
