    Smile First Quilt Finished!

    I posted on here a while back asking for help figuring out some fabric yardage. Well after a few months, a bit of seam ripping, and resewing I finally finished the Quilt for my sisters wedding! Here it is!! (A little blurry) I decided to not do a biding and just quilted the backing to the top then sewed on the bottom and flipped it out to seal it on finish of the edges. Not all of the corners line up exactly but I'm really happy with it for my first quilt !

    Your quilt is beautiful. I love your fabrics. Great job!
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Congratulations on your "Firstie!" It looks to me like you did a very nice job and you chose some lovely fabrics. I am sure your sister is going to love it - and you are off to a great start! Can't wait to see what you do next!
