First two lessons done

The first two practical lessons from Quilter's Academy went pretty fast. First up was class 130, lesson five - making the center of Carrie's sampler quilt. I'm actually making two, one in red and one in green. The plan is to make a reversible quilt, green on one side and red on the other. It turned out pretty well for a first-ever project on the sewing machine.
The green one looks better in real life, something in the fabric made it shine much more when taking a picture, leading to less contrast in the picture.
Next up was the first full top in lesson seven of class 130. There were two options, Harriet's Woodland Winter quilt or Carrie's Cowboy Corral. I went with the second option because I wanted to try out fussy cutting fabric. I let my mother pick the fabrics, since the quilts going to be for her.
I'm calling this quilt "Tulip Garden" (or in Dutch: Tulpentuin). The borders still have to be attached, but that's not until later in the book. So for now, this top is finished.
