My First Quilt

My first quilt started as a simple embroidery project. I had never made a quilt but found an embroidery patter for state birds. After doing the embroidery I followed the instructions and sewed the blocks together layered the top batting and backing and machine stitched between the blocks. I hated it so I added some "decorative" machine stitching between the blocks...still hated it, It didn't look like my image of a quilt. So I bought a package of quilting needles and some hand quilting thread and a hoop and learned to quilt.

It took forever! But it was a learning experiance, and I love the quilt now.
