My First Quilt

I enclosed some of my counted cross stitch projects in this quilt. 
Some pieces were sewn by hand, and some were sewn on the machine.
I didn't know how to use the sewing machine before I started.  I have never used one before and I didn't know the 1/4 seam allowance rule existed in quilting since I was self taught.  The hearts came from a Simply Quilt Episode on HGTV with Alex Anderson.  I loved that show, and it was so over my head at the time.

Hand Piecing Attaching Diamonds

Make sure you line up the center of your marks where it makes an x with a straight pin through the two pieces when sewing.  I pressed the middle row seams up, and the first and third row seams down.  Make your finishing knot on the x.  I hope the pictures are clear enough.  Thank You for visiting.
