Having decided to take up quilting for my next sewing challenge, I have finished making my first ever quilt block. It is a Greek Cross, and the instructions can be found on Marcia Hohn's amazing Quilters Cache website.
I have decided to have a go at Popular Patchwork's stay at home quilt challenge for 2010. The idea is you make an initial block, then they will show you how to add a different style border to it each month until you end up with a whole quilt top by the end of the year. The instructions said to make a 12 1/2 inch block for starters and mine is only 12 inches but hopefully I will be able to work out the maths required!!
I know it's not perfect but I am pretty pleased with it for my first attempt :-)
