My first quilt

Well, I have my first grandbaby coming.  My daughter wanted to go through the blankets and take what was hers.  As we went through them we came across the first quilt I had ever made.  I couldn't believe what great condition the quilt was in.  There was only one problem.  There was no batting.  The batting that I had used had completely disappeared.  I was really surprised.  I also had no mitered corners.

I made this quilt for my first daughter.  I was taught by my aunt.  She help me decide on the pattern, it was a log cabin pattern.  Then took me shopping for the fabric.  I came up to her house, where she helped me cut out the fabric and showed me how to put the quilt together.  But by the time it came to quilt it and bind it I had put the quilt aside and many years had passed.  She had gone other ways and so had I.  I should have stayed the task and finished the entire quilt with her.

Boy I have learned a lot over the years.  There is definitely reasons why you need to use quality batting and use correct methods of sewing.  Take the time to learn from others.  Also learn how to correctly fold quilts so that you don't have permanent folds in your quilts.
