    So here are some pictures of my first ever quilt! I did the 10-min-block quilt (with a lot of help from kwhite!). I have just started on the actual quilting bit but I know I am so hooked already!! :) I already have fabric for another quilt and have many more I want to make!!!

    Thank you so much! My bed frame is black so I thought it would be nice together, and pink is my favorite color!

    So great that kwhite could help! Isn't this an awesome board?

    I just watched a video on how to do the 10 minute quilt, and made a practice one. I also want to do a bed size quilt with this pattern.. Love yours

    WOW Stitch you are doing a great job.... But I knew you would. You can put it into a quilt show when you are done with it. Most quilt shows have a "first quilt" category. I see the Harry Potter quilt blooming in your brain from PA. LOL you must have a label on the back when you are done. They usually have information like when you made it, by who, and sometimes you name your quilt or put it's "story" for everyone in the world to see.


    Oh and your young man is adorable!!!!!! has he figured out that you are the catch of the century yet?

    I tried the 10 minute block but struggled with how to stitch it down on top. Yours looks pretty flat how did you stitch around the black blocks?
