I wanted to learn how to quilt and this was the pattern I selected as my very first intro into quilting. I loved the piecing, but not so much the quilting and binding. It has been sitting in my sewing room unfinished for too many years. I finally decided it was time to get some of my UFOs completed, and this is the first one I worked on. I used my emboridery machine to do all the quilting, and that was a first as well. I learned a lot since I started on this quilt, and have ejoyed my journey of quilting. It all started with this quilt.
