Anchor's Aweigh!

This quilt was a guinea pig for me for a couple of reasons.

A) I had no pattern. I made it all up. It was frustrating/unplanned/crazy. But I'm proud of how I brought it all together in the end.

B) I used my new sewing machine! Woohoo!! I still have lots of tricks to learn on the new machine, but this is my first quilt on it.

Sooo...there were LOTS of mistakes and I wanted to just give up several times, but I'm glad it's done. I used the Nautical and Nice charm pack from Moda for the bulk of the quilt.

As a struggling new quilter, I'm okay with the turnout of this quilt.

  1. Super cute! Great job with no pattern. Trust me the first of everything is never as good as later ones. Sean often tells me that my first scrapbooks are so bad compared to later ones! Also you should link projects like this to link parties! It is great way to get traffic to your blog. All you do is on a given day, find a party (check out my blog for day specific ones) go to the bottom of the party, link up, and then comment on the one before you or any other that apply to you (we all like comments). Anyways hope that helps!
