I am attempting to make my first quilt. I actually have no idea what I am doing, I simply want to use up all the fabric scraps I have collected here and there, over the years. I'm not really paying much attention to overall design either (as you can see above) so I guess it will just turn out looking however it decides to. Which hopefully won't be too much of a mess!
It also means I finally get to make friends with my new sewing machine, which was a birthday present from my beloved Grandma. All my previous sewing adventures have been done using a Singer machine that had it's heyday circa 1930. I'm happily getting used to using a foot pedal (rather than a knee lever) and being able to do more than one straight stitch. Fun times.
