Split nine patch quilt. As I was making this quilt I did not like it. But once finished I love it!! So did the boys.

Beginners quilt - cot quilt. This quilt is a cot size with a lot of novelty childrens fabric. I used the process to teach some people how to quilt. It teaches 1/4 inch seaming, straight lines, squares, triangles - which are the basics for most quilts.

Blocks donated by Julie, finished and quilted by me.
