My daughter just recently moved into her new house and while unpacking we came across one of the first quilts I had made. it is probably my favorite quilts. I have learned a lot since then, but I still wouldn't change anything about this quilt. It brought back a lot of memories for me. I am a self taught quilter and can honestly say I did everything the hard way back then. I have learned a lot by trial and error (lots of errors) but it was all well worth it, I think you learn more by doing then seeing. And I have invented a few of my own technique. As seen in the binding tutorial. But I heard somewhere that there are no mistakes just design opportunities. I truly believe that. There is nothing set in stone when it comes to quilting. So, maybe I will make that quilt I bought lots of fabric for before I was told to use only 100% cotton. I only buy 100% cotton now, but before I learned of good quality quilting fabric I bought what I thought was pretty, and just so happens it wasn't all cotton and has been packed away in a bin. But now that I look back at this quilt and see I used seersucker and muslin, it doesn't matter it was fun to make and I love it as much as my new found fabric quilts.
