    I know it isn't as exciting as some of the other quilts I've seen around, but it's still mine. I feel the need to show it off!

    It's about big enough to use as a lounging on the couch blanket, which I figure is alright for a first try. It was made from a jelly roll of some kind of batiks I don't recall the name of, unfortunately.

    For the next one I'm going to have to learn how to properly do the binding.

    The backing fabric doesn't match so well, so not many photos of it.

    I've already got a few plans for the next ones lined up, I'm so excited!

    Very pretty. I've made lots and lots of quilts and am still amazed how great they turn out and amazed that I made them.
    Very amazing for a first.

    Haha, thanks so much, guys :3

    It's still kind of a surprise to me when I look at it to think I made it, that's mine.

    Meanwhile, my siblings who watched me put it together and work on it have each decided they would like one too! I guess once you get started it's hard to stop the ball from rolling.

    Lots of people begin with a rail fence design. Your quilt has the added detail and complication of being set on point. You are on your way to being addicted like the rest of us. Good job!

    I don't know why you don't think it's exciting. I think it's very pretty and you did a great job of blending the blues. I'd say your siblings like it, too! I have three siblings and I could make an award winning quilt and they wouldn't want it. Have fun, and you'll soon be addicted just like the rest of us!

    I get intimidated easily sometimes, especially after cruising around the internet seeing all the really fancy and impressive and creative things people have done with fabric I start to wonder why I ought to care about my piddly little first piece.

    I have to just remember everyone started with "piddly" things to begin with, and if I am happy with it that's what's important!
