I Did It!!!

I decided yesterday that I was going to sew. And sew I did!

I started at 8 am by cutting my jelly roll strips into 8 1/2 inch strips


which were then sewn into squares



and arranged in alternating order



The squares were then made into a rail fence quilt top!


I completed this much of it in only about 5 hours of sewing. I've never ever done that before! I know, it's an easy pattern, but I'm still incredibly proud of myself. This is my very first completed top :)

Now, I just need to pick up some fabric for the border, then I can finish the quilt top, quilt it, bind it and it's done. Yay!!

  5. Its a great start and I look forward to seeing it all finished. It feels great to finish a top even if the pattern is simple. Who cares how complicated the pattern is. It is turning out great.
