This is the first quilt I've ever made...unless you count the "quillow" quilted pillow I made about 15 years ago. This was made for our eldest over a period of months...not because it was terribly intricate or difficult but just because I was very busy with work and didn't have my own sewing machine. When I finally did get my own machine, I finished it off and presented it to her. She was about 2 1/2 at the time and absolutely thrilled (now almost 3 1/2, how embarrassing that it's taken me so long to post it!). Anyways, here it is on her bed - the sock monkey quilt, backed with red cordory.

It's not perfect by any means (and there is a bit of puckering on the backing ) but she likes it and I was rather proud of myself.
Next up, making a rag quilt play mat for my 4 month old!
