    I finished this quilt (my very first, by the way) back in September, but was so busy working on the Hill Country Spring quilt for a friend's wedding, that I just now got around to posting pics. I used a jellyroll, the "serenity" pattern from the "Strip Happy" book, and I did deco stitch-in/across-the-ditch with cream cotton, then did the lighter blocks with a light coral cotton just for accent and to play with it a bit.
    Here are a couple of pics.
    This quilt lives on my bed! And it's COLD down here in the sunny South!

    You did a great job for a first quilt. I would let it live on my bed, too.

    Portugal is a beautiful line of fabric. You did a fantastic job--I especially like the decorative stitching in the ditch. Very creative!
