What got me back into quilting, back when I was either a junior or senior in high school, was attending the Lowell Quilt Festival. I picked up a fat quarter packet and this pattern and decided to give it a go. This time, I did have a rotary mat and cutter, but I didn't know to use the ruler to measure and instead I used the lines on the mat. I had never read any how-to quilt books or taken a class. Considering that, I think it came out OK. I think the placement of the fabrics and blocks was what impressed me the most after taking this out of a bag after several years. Not had, eh?
With all that being said, there are quite a few errors. Seams don't match up well and it doesn't really lay flat. Oh well. It's still fun to look back at where I started and see how far I've come.
