    I'm sooo excited. I just finished my first quilt. Here are pictures of it. I made it using pieces of my daughters old shirts, the cream portion is from an old couch cover that we never used and some of the material I bought from a fabric store because I didn't have enough clothes to make the entire quilt.

    How cute and you even tackled triangles on your first quilt. Not an easy feat at all. Great job!

    Very nice. I would never have guessed it was your first.

    What are you working on now? As quilters we have to have at least a dozen things going or at least thinking about. lol
