Joining the Ranks… (My first quilt!)

That’s my girl!! So proud of her first attempt.


The house is being taken over by quilting… stuff. Which isn’t a bad thing, actually. I even tried a quilting project of my own today. My mom gave me a few pointers about the quilting, and reminders about how to use the sewing machine (put the foot down! Put the foot down!).  I think I should start using it to aid in some more advanced DIY wardrobe refashioning. But back to the quilting. Here’s the finished project!

Quilted Tea Cozy

This was my first time quilting, and although I skipped some details and made some mistakes, I think it turned out quite well. 🙂 I found that making your own tea-cozy pattern isn’t as hard as it sounds either, which was good because the Brown Betty in question was rather stout. She’s nice and warm now though. Comments? Let me know, I’d love to hear them!
