    Experimental Quilt because:

    Bought a cheap quilt kit at non fabric store -never used kit
    but added fabric to get 72"x88"
    The Simple Quilt -"Random Block Pattern "
    Wanted to try large block design
    Used spray to make sandwich -warm & natural
    Did stitch in ditch for quilting also BIG STITCH using
    DMC #8 perle cotton in varigated pink/brown (to fill in
    quilting area where needed within the 10" required)first time. Brought back to front to make binding .
    Washed well without runs . Keep for future for family.

    It is a very restful, pleasing to the eye, quilt. And congratulations on trying so many different new things at the same time!
