Mr. Dino Quilt is so great.

I love the colors. I love the size. I love what I learned from the project. I love that my nephew is going have my first major project.

A few things I learned:

1.  How to finish off a knot in a quilt

2.  Lining up seams when piecing the quilt together is important.  The seam ripper is OK to use.

3.  Fraying the edges of a rag quilt SUCKS.  I have bruises and blisters to prove it.

4.  Washing something with so much fabric can possibly be a disaster.  He came out SOAKING wet and weighing close to 50lbs I swear.  Three rounds of drying later and he was still soaked.  I had to hang dry him over night and pray that I didn't ruin him.  All is well tho, he survived.

Welp, I think I'm addicted to quilting. I already have my next one lined up and ready to start.  This next one will be a true quilt, and as you saw in a previous post, the experience hasn't started out all sunshine and butterflies.  I plan on trying to salvage what I can and learn as I go.

Here goes nothing!
