    Well after a year of hard work doing the Thangles Buck a Block at my local quilt sore I finally have my finished quilt. I sent it right before Thanksgiving to the professional long arm quilter, got it back last week and finished putting the binding on it.

    Here it is on our bed, it is a queen sized quilt. Can't wait to work on my next project.

    Yes this is my first quilt, I have made blankets before and tied them but I dont consider that a quilt.

    I have some stuff I have made that I never finished, now I will motivate myself to finish them they are blocks that need to be put together!

    Thanks, it was one of those buck a block programs so the quilt store chose the colors.

    Your quilt is great and I really like the way you set your blocks to make your quilt queen size. I would be passing my bed 100 times a day with a big smile on my face, if I was you!!
