My first ever quilt!!!

 Today I finally finished my very first quilt! This is one of the reasons I haven't been making so many paper projects of late! I have another quilt that I just need to do the binding on, but I wanted to practice the binding on this sewing one first as it was black and could hide any mistakes I might make along the way! lol
I did all the embroidery by hand and trust me - embroidery with gold thread is HARD! lol I did have fun finding all the embellishments for it. I sewed on buttons, safety pins, beads, lots of thread and even a pair of scissors!
One of the reasons I wanted to do this wall quilt was because I have my grandmothers antique sewing machine that looks EXACTLY like the one in this quilt!! I will hang up the quilt next to the machine!
And as I said it's my first EVER quilt so please be kind with your comments! hehe I got to learn SO much doing this - so on-wards and upwards!!!


  1. WOW that is an awesome quilt, Julia great job

  2. You did a beautiful job! Your quilt is gorgeous! I'm jealous.

  3. WOW - can't wait to see it in person. Might just have to invite myself over :)

  4. What an incredible achievement, Julia! An amazing first quilt - hope you hang on to this one...!
