I did it!

I like to take my wedding rings off when I sew.   I just realized I see them here in this picture, haha!

I have conquered the quilt!  My very first quilt is completely done, and has been in use for about 4 days now.  It is rife with imperfection and beginnerness, but I love it nonetheless.  Unfortunately I don't have very good pictures of it because the weather is horrible here, but...  Horrible weather makes perfect curling up under a new quilt weather!
Stats:
Size: throw (I forget the actual dimensions, but it's a big throw)
Fabric: Heather Bailey's Pop Garden and Bijoux, plus Kona white
Quilting:  machine quilted, straight-line 1/4 from the seams, by me

The binding might be my favorite part!  I won't lie - quilting this on my dinky little machine was hard...  But not so hard that I'm not ready to jump right in & make more!
