    This is a picture of my very first quilt. It was supposed to have flowers appliqued on it, but I figured she would like hearts instead. I gave it to her at Christmas and was just now getting a good picture of it and Megan. It's still not a great pic, but you can see it pretty good. The fabric I got at Wal-Mart before they closed the fabric section. The backing is hearts and they are multi colored, I got it at JoAnn's. The pattern is called "Flower Power" from magazine "American Quilter March 2010".

    I was so pumped about getting it done, I did a small quilted checkerboard for my nephew Justin. He is all into music, so I changed the theme from Halloween to music notes. I am still trying to find buttons that are music themed. The pattern is from "Fons & Porter's Easy Quilts" Fall 2010 and it's called "Eerie Alley Gameboard". The fabric from JoAnn's and Thomas Sewing Center in Mesquite.

    Thanks for looking.
    Bobbi

    If that is your very first quilt, you definitely have natural talent. Both the quilts are awesome.
