My First Quilt
Topic: Quilting

I've been holding off showing this quilt since I finished it in early November. It was made for my eldest grand-daughter and I had to wait until she had opened it for her birthday before revealing it.

I used a pattern called Puzzling Pieces. It is made up of 33 colors (used twice each), black (for the 'missing pieces') and a colorful dotted print (for the backing and binding.)


This is a full-size quilt. Each of the 9-inch blocks is made up of 7 separate pieces. I backed it, free-motion quilted it, and hand-bound it. Here you can see the diagonal wavy stitching that is the quilting as well as getting a better view of the backing fabric:

I hand embroidered the label for the back of the quilt as well (name redacted for security).

I am doing one for each of the 5 grandkids, but they will wait for posting like this one did, until the birthday when it is presented.
