So, this is pretty much the first thing that I've ever attempted to sew.  I made it for my fiancé's mom's wedding last weekend (she loved it - Yay!) and it took me about 5 months to make.  I did everything completely by hand, so it's definitely NOT perfect, but I'm still pretty happy with it.  It's really simple - just two cotton fabrics on the front (50 squares of each), the white one quilted with 4 hearts in a circle and the blue one just with a square around the edges.  The back is some random blanket-y fabric that I found that has blues and whites and yellows in it and it SO soft. 
Well, I'd love to hear what you think.  Thanks for looking!
