    I finished my first quilt about a month ago. As I type, it is on it's way to my wonderful MIL. She loves flowers so I decided on The Majic Vine by E Burns. I have been so inspired by all of you that I decided to post and let you see. My inspiration came in that you all have acknowledged 'oops' in your own quilts. Well, mine has them and I know just where to look. I sent my topper out to be quilted by a lady from my LQS. She did an excellent job. (P.S. My DH is already talking about getting me a long arm. I told him I had just finished my first quilt and that certainly should wait a while! :) ) Second quilt pic will be in another topic.

    Very pretty. I would re-think the offer for you to get a long arm, you will soon need one and Hubby may withdraw the offer.

    Your MIL will treasure this quilt and especially it being the very first one that you made, what an honor for her to be the first recipient of it!

    This is a really pretty table runner. It is very soft and sweet. Recently, I bought that book and have 'looked' at it several times. You might be the inspiration I need to get started on the quilt.
