    I took a class at my local LQS and all we got done was the top. I have a few co-workers that quilt so they helped me with the sandwich and backing. I used tutorials that I found on this site and other to do the quilting and binding. I sewed and ripped out more than I like to admit -- yes, the seam ripper is my friend. More than anything I learned more this way and would not trade it for anything. I took the quilt to work today and everyone could not believe that I made it and that it was my first quilt. I was very proud of the binding and the corners. I am already working on another one for my friend's new grandson. I AM SO-O-O HOOKED!!

    Thanks everyone for the encouragement. I have to admit that I was hesitant to wash it last night. When it came out of the dryer in one piece I go so excited.
