First Quilt

Rag Quilt_1

It is done. Filled with imperfections and there are about 100 little things I wish I had done differently but overall I am happy.

While working on the quilt I decided a rag quilt is probably the equivalent of a scarf knitted with thick-n-thin yarn on large needles. It covers imperfections nicely but there is true beauty in a finished piece done by a skilled craftsperson.

And maybe one day I will become a skilled quilter. I do not see it taking the place of knitting or crocheting in my life by any means. The rhythm of quilting is so different. Sewing requires me to set up my machine, ironing stuff and pull out my fabric to work. The process is labor incentive but very rewarding. Knitting and crocheting is more relaxed and organic. I can sit on the sofa, watch tv and slowly feel the yarn growing into something in my hands. Both and great and appeal to different sides of my nature.

  • Hey! That’s an amazing first quilt. And, perfection is highly over-rated. Quilting is a folk art after all.
