First Quilt Square EVER!


For my wild card project for SYTYC (season 3) last year, Danielle from Drawstring Studio, gave me the gorgeous fabric!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE her store but do not get down there (Milwaukee) enough! She does, however, have an etsy store. 

Anyway, last month she asked me if I would be interested in doing a virtual quilting bee.  For those of you who don't know what that is (I didn't either), there are 12 of us in the group.  At the beginning of each month, one of us gets to send out enough fabric and quilt square instructions to each of the other 11 ladies.  At the end of the month, we get 11 completed quilt squares... all ready to put together a quilt!  So cool!  But there was one hitch... I've never quilted before.  I figured... how hard can it be though.

So, At the beginning of February, I got my fabric from Danielle for the first square.  Of course the fabric she sends is AMAZING!  You better believe I'm heading down to the store to have her help me pick out the fabric for my squares when it's my month!

Anyway, here is my very first quilt square ever!  Not bad for a first time, but there are some mistakes.  eeek.  I feel hideous that there are ANY mistakes being that the fabric wasn't mine.  Hopefully she will forgive me!



Amazing fabrics, right?  Just love it!

Here is the link for the instructions to make this easy quilt square.
