This is my entry for the first quilting challenge. I made it in about 1 hour last night. Its a gift for my sister (hi sarafina) and it is called back to school.

The little quilt measures 10.5 x 10.5 inches. The binding was hand finished.


The bow is three dimensional and its held on by a few little stitches.


and here is a close up of the binding, and my very basic quilting stitches!


an in progress picture, as i was sewing on the binding



woohoo! I'm very excited to kick off this quilting challenge!

Ahhh! I love it!

I love that you used the scraps from my bag for the bow. We're going to use every last inch of that fabric.
