    My own first bed quilt

    Started this last fall after seeing someone post a picture that she made from a Quiltmaker pattern. Thought WOW, I could do that. I must not have picked out the right fabrics, because I didn't like how it was coming along. Got the good old ripper out and changed it, making more of some blocks and none of the others. I love it! Quilted it on my trusty Pfaff and now it is on the bed. I had 4 leftover blocks and made 2 shams with some leftover fabric. Looks great on my queen size bed and it is all mine.

    I love your quilt, both the pattern and the colors used. A small background print always catches my eye.

    Whatever changes you made must have been the right ones since it turned out so pretty! Nice job!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
