    Labor of Love Finished

    Originally, I had set out to work on a lap quilt; however, the quilt suddenly became a Queen size one. LOL
    As a newbie this was my second quilt ever, I bit off more than I could chew so to speak with my new found enthusiam for quilting. So a couple of weeks ago I asked this forum for help on how to manage the sandwiching of the front, batting anf the back. Your responses were tremendous- thank-you all once again. Many wanted to see it completed so here it is. BTW, I did end up using a king size 100% cotton sheet for the backing.

    I also wanted to show my first quilt - a wall hanging- that I completed in December - it was an anniversay gift to my brother who got married in a church (after a snowstorm) that looked just like the one in the quilt . You can see why I said I was over my head with the second quilt. LOL

    I have learned a lot in the short time I have been quilting. All in all, I am so Blessed to have found joy in quilting.

    You may think that you were in over your head, but I disagree. Your first 2 quilts have turned out beautiful. Keep up the good work!!!

    The fabric with the little church in the snow is perfect. I can see you will have many years of enjoyment with quilting.
