    Lap Quilt For My Grandma

    I made this for my Grandma last year for christmas.
    For being one of the first quilts I made, I am very pleased with the way it turned out!
    I can't remember the name of the block, but for quilting I used stich in the ditch. I didn't
    know how to do binding then so I just folded over the ends and sewed together.
    This Quilting Board has tought me alot of new techniques!

    Amazing first quilt! You have chosen such beautiful colors and your piecing sure looks better than my first quilt. Great job! Grandma is going to be touched. I know I would be if my granddaughter made me something so beautiful.

    Beautiful quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Look very challenging for one of your 1st quilts. You did a beautiful job and I'm sure your grandma is enjoying it so much.

    Very pretty. Really great for a first quilt. I think it is so cool when you use the same blocks, but move the colors around and get such a neat look. I'm sure she is going to love it.

    Nice! Your granny is going to love it! I've learned a lot here on the board too, including going to YouTube for videos on just about anything to do with making a quilt. There are several videos on binding done different ways.
