This is my first quilt in a long time, and my first quilt ever that wasn't a tied, blocky baby quilt!



It's a sawtooth star pattern, from "The Complete Guide to Quiltmaking" by Diana McClun and Laura Nownes (a great, great book--I had only the faintest clue what I was doing and this walked me through the entire process). Superstich helped me a ton also! It's in between a baby quilt size and a twin quilt size, because I was going to make it twin quilt size but I got tired of putting together blocks  Tongue, quilted around and inside the stars and in lines around the sides. I used this beautiful set of gradated blue fabrics that I got from my LFS, and used the scraps to make a gradated inner edging. It's backed by a pretty firework patterned fabric that matches the blues of the quilt.

It's a wedding present for a good friend of mine, and I'm giving it to her tomorrow--I hope she likes it! And I am totally into quilting now...I just started cutting pieces for a new baby quilt!
