I have a low tolerance for multi-step crafting or sewing projects. I'm an instant gratification kind of girl, which is why I usually stick to smaller things.
Which makes this quilt along kind of torturous. :)
Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying the sewing and watching my first (okay, second, but I never finished the first one and I can't find it, anyway) quilt come together, but it's taking a REALLY LONG TIME.
I decided last night, right in the middle of sewing quilt strips together, that I needed something super quick to make; a tiny little project that wouldn't detract too much from the big quilt. Plus, I'm a little nervous that I hadn't practiced any important quilting skills (like binding) before.
I dug into Ye Olde Crafty Cabinet and found some charm squares I picked up at a local quilt show recently. Voila!
May I present my first completed quilt?
Doesn't it look ginormous? I love the magic of photography. :)
It's actually coaster-size. It didn't take very long and I used the opportunity to practice binding (which turned out okay- check out that corner!). I was also relieved that my sewing machine was able to handle all the layers of fabric and batting.
Yay for useful, tiny projects!
