Well I decided to be brave. The worse thing that would happen is that I would be buying the material that my friend supplied from her and apologizing for my lack of sewing ability.
Last night, I finished sewing squares together (FINALLY). Omgosh, there's a lot of little squares in a quilt.
Here's the front of the quilt w/ the 'rag look':
Here's the back of the quilt (traditional look): What do you think?
Today, I will be using You Tube to find good instructions (and easy I hope) on how to bind a quilt.
Wish me luck!
