I'm lucky enough to have a mother-in-law who is an amazing quilter, and last year she decided to teach me how to quilt.  I jumped in with both feet, or however the expression goes, and decided to make a twin sized quilt right away.  I have to say, learning how to machine quilt on something so large was a PAIN! Smiley

I made this for my daughter's room when we were moving her to her "big girl" bed.  It's a flying geese pattern, made with pinks and greens (all of the ladies in our quilting group were pretty skeptical when I pulled out the fabric, initially).  I called the quilt "Brynn's Enchanted Garden" (my daughter's name).



On the bed (and a bonus shot of my son, who is still awaiting HIS first quilt:

Wow, that is an amazing first quilt! What a nice combination of colors for a little girl! I am totally impressed by your patience and your courage to choose something that difficult for a first quilt.

That is gorgeous!  You put a lot of planning into that and it shows.  Looks like it could be on the cover of a quilting magazine!  You did great!!

I love the colors you chose.  Those greens really pop next to all the other colors.  I would never have been able to look at those colors and think they went together.  what a great eye for color you have.

And is that a leaf canapy over the bed?
