    First finish!

    Here's my first traditional quilt ever to be finished. First machine quilted quilt. I have another that the binding needs to be stitched on in the back and that will be my first handmade binding. Look out quilting world, here I come!

    Here's a closer look. Just ignore the mistakes, it's a little wrinkly and crooked, but getting there.

    Here's the back, not sure how clear this picture is, but it'll give you an idea of the quilting. Plain and simple. I need to figure out how to sandwich better so I don't get so many puckers in the backing.

    That is one fabulous quilt! Pinwheels are not the easiest way to begin! Your points are better than mine and I've made about 150 quilts! I love the color combination and the darling border too.

    Lovely quilt. I wish my pinwheel points were as good as yours. Love the prairie points, too.
