My first quilt was a hurry up and get going deal because I'd found the first Old Red Barn quilt-a-long already one week in the works. I rushed to the fabric store and bought hurriedly and came home to start cutting. I learned a tremendous amount from that first quilt, not only about sewing but also about the comradery and generosity of the virtual quilting community.
This zig zag quilt was the second one our group did and was led by Amy. This time around I really took time to come up with a vision and carefully picked out the fabrics accordingly. I'm sure the women at Joanne Fabrics thought I was having some sort of breakdown the way I wheeled the cart of fabric around the store putting some back, picking some up, putting some back, picking more up, etc. I was still so new I hadn't even discovered on-line fabric stores yet. Can you imagine!?
