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!

There is always something 'special' about our 'first' quilt!

Good job!

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.
