My First Quilt

I started making quilts a few years ago. The first was for my son's birthday. It's a simple nine patch. The quilting comes from my crazy quilt background. I used crochet cotton and did a herringbone stitch along the edges of the nine patch blocks. The back is microfleece and it is very soft and cozy.

I'll bet he loves it:) Sounds so warm and cozy, especially with all the love it's been made with.

Dear Kate,
I followed your link when you posted on my new blog. Thank you so much for your post. I love your blog. I actually went from quilting to crazy quilting. I have made (or at least started) many quilts. I did knit one time but I doubt I can remember how now. Great job on the caps. I am excited about entering into this great world of wonderful women and their blogs and crafts.
