This is my first quilt!

While we stayed home for our honeymoon, we did a little shopping with our gift cards, and my husband got me a sewing machine as his wedding gift to me. I had gotten him a mini fridge for his man room. ;o) I was so excited because I have been wanting to learn to quilt for awhile now.

My first quilt is a rag quilt, and I have to say, I think it was the perfect quilt to do for a first time quilter. It was so quick, and I am so in love with it now! Plus, to top things off, I was able to use all left over scraps of flannel from my Christmas project last year when I made my whole family pajama pants. The only fabric I had to buy was a piece of plain flannel for the "batting."

Let me know what you think!


  1. Lovely, very pretty. I know you will enjoy your sewing machine for years to come. Is that your Husband I see helping at the bench? I'm glad you Started as you mean to go on (smile) Kath x

  2. That is my husband "helping." It looks more to me like he is reading a book, but what the hey! We'll pretend he loves to help me sew. ;o)

  3. I really do love this quilt! The colors are very nice together!

  4. That is very pretty. Congrats on your quilt
