My look back project for today is a small wall hanging that I did back in March of '05. The project was a kit from Connecting Threads catalog, back when they were still selling a lot of Moda fabrics in kits. (Wish they still were!) I really encourage newbie quilters to do small projects ... they really do help you build confidence. And with their small size, you have less money invested in each one (so you can do more), and you can get each project accomplished more quickly, and not get bored with the piece or feel overwhelmed. Is it perfect? No, not at all. But I learned some new lessons, and gained experience and confidence!
