    my first quilt!

    It's not anything spectacular like I have seen on here. But it's my first. I saw a picture of one that someone had named Squares of Color, no name to give credit too, but I liked it because I could just use my imagination and mainly it looked very easy to start with. I still have my outside edge to go, batting, back and binding. So I'm not there yet! Will post another pic when I'm done tho!

    Your sewing is great I think if you used the butterscotch for the horizontal strips you would tie it together better. It would really pop. Just a suggestion. Every quilt is special. You should see the messes I made but no one I ever gave them to knows the difference and they are used and loved.

    Great choice for a first quilt - my first quilt is in my closet unfinished and has been there for about 40 years. I chose a very complicated design and wish that I would have picked a 9-patch like yours. I had lots of scraps leftover from sewing clothing from my children.

    You did a great job. I like the 9 patch and have made about 12 of them. There are 101 different way to do them. Use your imagination and have fun with them. The sky is the limit. Can't wait to see it quilted.
