My First Quilt: Finished!

Thanks for the helpful comments about what to do with the black squares! I decided to go ahead and stitch some free motion all around the appliqu├ęs. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out! I used white thread, but it's not near as noticeable as I thought it would be on the black fabric.

The binding was a little more work than I had anticipated, but I think for a first try it turned out alright...there are definitely a lot of mistakes and my mitering skills leave much to be desired.

(you can see that my backing is a little out of whack - I bought the wrong size cut of fabric and didn't want to drive back across town to get more, so I pieced it together.)

And best of all, it's Rowan approved!


  1. It looks great! I am really impressed that you tackled this type of project!

  2. I think you did a great job. Wished I had time and the know how to do something like this.

    This will be something she can have from Mommy for the rest of her life. What a great memory!

  3. Wow - great colors and what a great gift!

  4. backing is super cute


Thanks for taking time to leave a comment!
