    Hi Everyone! First of all, thank you all for the wonderful inspiration I've received from all of your beautiful quilts (and sewing rooms).

    Here is my first quilt top. My mom (who is also relatively new to quilting) helped me with it. I am SITD quilting this one and will bind in the brown fabric. Also attached is the next top I'm working on. One of the TIC posted recently made up my mind on the pattern I'd like to try next. This one will be for my bed.

    Thanks for looking!

    Great job! I love how crisp and evenly your seams come together and match up. For a first quilt (and second), that's pretty darn amazing!

    You sure are doing a great job for 1st and 2nd quilts. The TIC is wonderful. The pinwheel one has interesting colors....I like it.....the darker dot fabric adds to the 'spinning' motion.
