    Some years ago (can't remember just when, but it's been quite a while), I took a Guild workshop on paper piecing. This is "The Little Neighborhood", one of my first paper pieced quilts, and one of the first times I tried some free motion quilting too! It's been hanging on my entertainment center for a long time & I still love looking at it! :D

    I also like looking at it. It is a "happy" quilt.

    Very cute, one of those wall quilts you wouldnt mind having your first cup of coffee in the morning and sitting back and just enjoying the colors. I especially like the quilting on the sides.. I prefer simple quilting to over quilting any day of the week.

    I am sorry, did you say how big it is? It is very cute. I would have been tempted to put a bird on it somewhere.

    It's about 10" X 15" I think. (Of course, I'm at work now & it's at home... :wink: )

    It is really darling. I like the simple fmq also. Some quilts get over quilted and are stiff and not very cozy.
