    Here is a photo of my first quilt - I made this for my daughter for her 5th birthday

    Piecing is my biggest challenge - this is the top before the final pressing

    I free-motioned the quilting in an all-over, meandering pattern - it got easier as I went along.

    I love how it went with the rest of her room :)

    It's beautiful. I was given a great deal of pink fabrics and I want a pink/green fabric to go with them. I wish you could go with me because I really love your fabrics. You did a great job on your quilt.

    I used the Bliss collection by Bonnie and Camille for Moda. The line has an aqua colorway too, but I didn't use that - I stuck to the pinks and greens! It's a great color combo :)

    I really like both of the quilts and your piecing looks really nice, how proud to share your talent with your daughter and mom.
