So after a week or two of re-learning how to use my sewing machine tonight I finally felt ready to make my first quilt square.
After watching countless tutorials that make everything look extremely easy I was not surprised to make a few mistakes! This doesn’t bother me I’m totally thrilled to be on my way FINALLY!

So here is my first 9 patch, assembled from a disassembled dress that I suppose represents a friendship just as disassembled as it (not sure how I feel about that) 😔😜😳😉

I do know that suddenly out of nowhere a strong and undeniable urge to quilt has overcome me. I think rationally that I probably don’t want to go back to school for one more gruelling semester before graduation…
YAY 9-PATCH! \o/
