I can finally post my pictures here! Cheesy
I made this quilt and pillows for my mom for Christmas, also a Craftster, so I had to stop myself from posting pictures this entire time!

This was my first quilt ever and superstitch helped me with A TON of it!
She gave me so much advice along the way and also let me use her pattern from her quilt here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=105317.0 Smiley

Lots of inprogress shots!

Putting the blocks together:




The quilt top!!! I almost cried when this was done and it looked like a quilt! Cheesy



The pillows!

Unstuffed




Everything together, all tied up and ready to be packed up for Christmas!



The binding was wonky... but ya know, in the long run I though to myself- I don't really mind because at least I tried! Smiley

Wow! That looks great! I love the Victorian look the buttons added, and that goes so well with the colors and flowers. Very pretty. Smiley

Cheesy Thanks everyone!
tinafish- I think Moda might be one of my favorite new lines! I've found so many new patterns I want to use, I'm going to have to make at least 5 other quilts... if I'm brave enough! lol
