    My first bed size quilt!!!

    I have made several baby quilts, but they've always been checkerboard pattern. This was a big step for me and I love the way it turned out. It's definitely not perfect, but I can't wait to start my next project. I still have to piece the back together and then a friend of mine is going to teach me how to use her long arm! I can't wait.
    That is my lovely DH holding the quilt and my darling little inspector is my baby girl Evelyn. I made this quilt for her future big girl bed.

    A very pretty first quilt, perfect for the baby when she is bigger. I say congratulations on a job well done. I know you can't wait to get it quilted.

    Is there a quilt in that picture? I couldn't take my eyes off of Evelyn..she is a doll. Oh yes, the quilt is beautiful, too. I love those colors.

    What a great job you did on the quilt! One would never guess it is your first one. Your daughter is even more adorable than the quilt :-)

    I think your little quilt inspector thinks the quilt is perfect! Me, too. I love the large prints mixed with the blenders. It adds so much drama to a quilt!
