My Fabulous First Quilt

I am really proud of this quilt. As I mentioned the title it is the first proper quilt I have made, although I had a little practice making this. The fabric is bright and slightly psychedelic, but in my defence I had never chosen fabrics to put together in a quilt before.

I made it during a two day workshop run by Running With Scissors. The excellent tutor was Janet who is currently setting up The Yorkshire Modern Quilt Guild.

This is my tacking before I quilted it on a domestic sewing machine…

Apologies for the poor light in some of the photos, it hasn’t stopped raining all week an I could not wait any longer to put it up!
