    First Fully and Completely Finished Quilt!

    Good morning! I love to start my day looking over all the posts and pictures on the Board. So much beauty and inspiration!

    I just finished (backing, binding and all) this quilt for my niece as a wedding present. It's a kit from Jinny Beyer called "White Knights" (no idea why it's called that -- not a speck of white in it!)

    This is the first time I've sent anything out to a quilter and I'm very pleased with the results. She worked with me to pick out different motifs for the blocks, boarders and corners. I love it!

    The fabrics from Jinny are beautiful -- almost batik-looking -- and so vibrant. I would definitely do another project using one of her kits.

    Happy quilting!
