First time quilter

First quilt by young sewing student











What a great accomplishment – a completed quilt! Personally, I have started more than one quilt, but have not been so successful with actually finishing them. My young student, Kathryn, has been working on this quilt for the past few sewing sessions, and today she finished it up. What a great job she did! She coordinated a nice selection of fabrics, laid them out in a pleasing arrangement, and stitched them together nice and accurately, too. There were lots of decisions along the way, a bit o’ ripping, and plenty of hard work. Today was the day we stitched on┬áthe binding, and called it good. I am really proud of Kathryn. As I mentioned earlier, actually completing quilts is not my strong suit, so I bow to anyone who can cross the finish line.

Great job, Kathryn – keep sewing!


Happy sewing!
