And a quilt…

Day 1: squares cut and sewn together, birds cut and pinned on.

Day 2: birds hand-sewn on

I finished sewing a dress – the first piece of clothing I’ve made in almost 20 years. And, well, it looks like a home ec project. It’s wearable and even flattering, but I’m not ready to reveal it to the world yet. One of these days I’ll get around to posting a photo.

Anyway, after the dress, I decided to embark on a project that required less fitting and allowed a little more room for error.

Et voila – this small quilt. These photos are from days 1 and 2 of work. The squares have been sewn together and the birdie appliqués have been sewn on.

Next up is topstitching (by hand). I think… I’ve never actually made a quilt before. Perhaps I should check out a book on it.
