Hélizca's 7-single quilt

December 2004 and our beginner's quilting course was rudely interrupted by the Christmas holidays and I couldn't imagine a day going by without being able to quilt. So with the knowledge built up during my first 3 month's of quilting and by buying a book on quilting I set out to make this quilt during the holidays. It started out to be a table cloth but once I laid the blocks out to see the bigger picture, my daughter, immediately claimed it as 'her' quilt.

My first big quilt, machine quilted myself, and although only stitched in the ditch, I felt as if I've won a world war!

Completed December 2004
