    This is the beginnings of my first 2011 quilt. I'm hoping by posting progress it will keep me on task. I've completed the first row, pieced almost all the blocks and picked out the backing fabric today. I'll post pictures on this thread as I go along.

    Great color choices. You could do this as a tute. Just include the sizes of the pieces etc as you go along.

    And here is the finished product. I'm going to make another one for my niece for her birthday so I'll try and do a tutorial if anyone is interested. The colors in these pictures are off because it's dark but the former pictures show the true color. Finished size is 60x60.
