First Quilt

While we were in Florida in January, visiting friends, family and the House of the Mouse, we spent a couple days with some very special friends. Chris has been my husbands friends since they were kids and his wife Theresa is a wonderful person. We hit it off when we first met when we were in college. So, we have been friends with them for a LONG time!

Theresa mentioned to me that she wanted to learn to quilt. So off we went to the fabric store to buy a rotary cutter, ruler and mat. All I really had time to show her was how to use her new supplies. We cut 6.5 inch squares. Imagine my surprise when she called and told me that she had finished 2 tops and had several more started. So I need to get back down there to show her how to something new like half square triangles or borders.

Here is one of her first quilts while it was on my frame...
I used King Tut thread on the top. I love this bright variegated thread, it is called Cleopatra and I like to use it on bright quilts. The backing of the quilt is bright blue and I used a matching thread.

I love the VW Bug fabric. It is really fun. I did line dancing through out the quilt. I like the way it looks and it is quick.

I love all the fun fabrics. Theresa did a great job of putting fabrics together. It is a really cute quilt. Now I need to get the second quilt on the frame.
