I decided I wanted to make a quilt for my cousin's birthday in August. She is an avid quilter and has made many quilts for my family. I thought it would be a great idea to give back, however this world be my first quilt. I choose Batiks Diamonds and thought I would just follow directions and sew it up. It wasn't easy since I had to learn about triangles, points, sashing, borders and binding. I was pleased with the finished product though.
