    Here's some pics of a quilt I made for my oldest daughter, Meagan. She naps quite often in the family room, so was dragging her other quilt back and forth between her bedroom and the family room. So now she has a "dedicated napping quilt". :) She picked out the fabric collection, as well as the border, backing, and binding fabric from the same collection.

    I made it from a Moda jelly roll of "Tranquility" fabric and it measures 52" x 76". The pattern is called "Pandora's Box" and is from the "Jelly Roll Quilts" book by Pam & Nicky Lintott. This was my first attempt at free-motion quilting and I REALLY like it. :D Now I wonder why it took me so long to get up the nerve to try it.

    I'm sure she's thrilled with it! There's nothing like a nap with a great quilt over you! I find myself using that book quite a bit! I love your fabrics!

    This is so cute and you did a good job quilting it. I too am hesitating quilting by machine anything except runners and small things. It costs way too much to send things to a machine quilter and I can't keep up hand quilting even though I love to do it.

    Beautiful quilt, I'm sure your daughter is very happy with it. FIRST ATTEMPT??? No way. If it is, I can't imagine what your second attempt will look like. Thanks for posting your pictures.
