For Mother's Day I had asked Mark for a sewing machine, why on Earth would you want a sewing machine.. You have never used one, your right I have never used one, it is time to start! So on my birthday I decided I was going to make my first quilt. I love the color GREEN! It is such a bright and cheerful color. I went to a local fabric store in town and found a quilt they had hanging up. I fell in love with it. It was lime green, black and white. I had to have it, so I bought the material and was on my merry way. Little did I know all the work that was involved in making a quilt. It took me awhile to find how I wanted my pattern to look, after I had it all sewed together I took it back to the local fabric store where I had them QUILT the quilt! I then bought a bright green fabric fro the binding. I hand stiched the binding, so don't look to close or you will see my flaw! I think mine turned out better than the actual one I found in the store!

Now, I want to make another one a king size quilt! We will see what happens!
