    The hand-eye coordination part is what will get me in trouble. I never was coordinated! LOL

    Sure! Here's a picture of the front. I'm pleased with it, since it's a design I created. (Not the most original design in the world, I'm sure, but I created it from scratch, so I'm proud.) I wish I'd been more particular in my fabric selection. It comes together very nicely, the way I had envisioned, but I wish I'd had a stricter quality guideline than "red or pink." Some of the fabrics are thinner than I'm comfortable with, and others just don't go together in theme. In particular, the one with the Easter bunny. LOL Should've left that one out. But you really don't notice that when you look at the quilt as a whole. Lesson learned for next time.
