I am entering the Authentic Quilt I made for my brother's 30th birthday in July this year.
I followed Dana from Old Red Barns Quilt Along several months after it was finished. This is the first big quilt I have made and I learnt so much quilting it particuarly how much easier it is to quilt if you have basted well.
The female members in my family were a little disappointed that the first quilt I gave away was to my brother and warned me he may not appreciate it. His reaction was so funny "You made it? What with?". When I said fabric he replied "But it looks like newspaper!".
