my first "quilt"

I've been thinking of making a quilt for robogock and gustaf's wedding but I've never quilted before. Yesterday I tried my hand at my first "quilt": a quilted pot holder.

Definitely could use some improvement. I'll probably make another one for practice. If it works out, I'll make a bunch for the holidays. I want to believe that sewing is so much faster than knitting, but it really wasn't for the pot holder, but probably because I was learning.

Also, I'm still working on my friend kris10p's thrummed mittens.

thrummed mittens for Kristen!

I totally missed her birthday and now I'm scrambling to finish before it becomes warm in Chicago!

Every time I read "thrummed" I think of strumming a guitar.

My friend Ben has done some quilt photography and he's seen some really crazy ones: http://photo.benpeoples.com/quilts-and-artwork/
I watched his quilt shoot video: he sets up these huge walls to mount the quilts and then he shoots without a tripod. How droll. There are some very cool quilts.
