    Smile My First Quilt

    Before reading, watching, and learning from all of you, I would not have had the courage to start this quilt. I'm so glad I did. This is from a pattern called Strip Cocktail. Made with 2 1/2" strips (jelly rolls). Cannot wait to start another pattern (not sure which one to try next).
