    Finished my first quilt

    For my first quilt I didn't use a pattern, just some black and brown squares sewed in rows, and then sewed on a pink boarder on all four sides (While the pink edges look like multiple fabrics, it's all one.) I did a basic stitch in the ditch for the quilting, and used double fold bias tape for the binding. Looking at it all I can see are the mistakes and imperfections, but am still glad I have my first one done. (It's about the size of a lap or baby quilt)

    Congratulations. You did a super job. I look forward to seeing more of your quilts posted.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    You already have a knack for putting fabrics together. Welcome to quilting! You'll soon find out it's an addiction, and I think you may already be hooked.
