    My first quilt :)

    Hello there everyone,

    I have just finished sewing the top design for my first ever quilt. It's a very simple design to start with, even though cutting accurately did give me some problems.... I may have cut some strips longer by talking to hubbie, cooking dinner, feeding chook, answering the door at the same time... as you do

    A bit of trimming here and there, I am finally finished with it, ready for batting and stitching in the ditch.

    What do you think?

    You did a terrific job! I love the colors you chose. The pop of black in the center is eye-catching.

    Wow, you lot don't hang about! Thank you for your replies, the black is a dark blue with little gold stars on it, lighting eh?

    Anything you would have done differently if you had made it yourself?

    Lovely quilt! Congrats! It took me a very long time from conception to the finish of my first complete quilt. 19+ years. I made the vow to finish under 20, and then made a few more in the next 6 months....You are much faster! Love the modern yet classic (is that possible?!) look to this quilt. Thanks for sharing!

    Nice work. Love the arrangement of the blocks - it makes the middle pop.
