I forgot to post the other week for the "My First Quilt" topic. Here is my first quilt, which I made almost 10 years ago. At that time, I owned a sewing machine, but I had never tried to make a quilt before. I decided to give it a try one day and picked up the book, "Quilt in a Day: Trip Around the World" by the prolific author, Eleanor Burns.
The book was really easy to follow, and even today I recommend it for absolute beginner quilters. I made a twin-sized quilt within two weeks, and I still enjoy using it! Granted, some of the techniques are not my taste anymore (tying the quilt instead of quilting it, using the inside-out method of finishing it instead of binding, etc), but it was a wonderful way to start my quilting career.
