Pictures of the quilt

These do not do it justice. For my first one all by myself it is not bad. I have found things I would do different next time.

I do really like the dissapearing 9 nine patch pattern. Today I am finishing up the edges and then head to the store for the batting and backing. It will be awhile for the actual quilting to begin since I am already lap quilting another one at the moment... Thought of trying the machine quilting just not sure yet.

Your quilt is lovely - I can't believe it is your first one!! There is something very therapeutic about sewing and quilting - hope it brings you some comfort at this time. Sending lots of positive thoughts your way :)

What beautiful colors! Your quilt is beautiful - so is your blog!
I only saved one quilt after the tornado, but luckily it was the one my grandmother made in the 20s... I'm planning on starting quilting again soon. The FEMA trailer just doesn't have the room for much in the way of crafts!
