Hi all, I am new here, was told about this place on another site and I think I am going to like it here. It's nice to see some other quilters since I don't know any besides my mom IRL.

This is the second quilt I ever made. My first quilt isn't finished (needs the last border added) and being my first, well.... you know how it goes. I am way too much of a perfectionist and since I am a self taught quilter, there are a lot of imperfections. I didn't know about how to iron seams between each step, I just pieced a block then tried to iron the whole thing at the end (Yeah, I had never sewn before) and my corners don't match up, and it's just not so pretty.

But this one, I knew a few more things and I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I love Vintage/Prim looking things and this quilt makes my heart sing. I love how it turned out. I made it lap size because I needed something to snuggle under to read, then I can just drape it over the back of the couch when not in use. It's a super simple pattern as well, can't go wrong.

Your quilt top looks great! Much better then my first few.  My first was a wedding ring quilt. (not a good one to start with by the way) A rule of thumb is that you press to the dark, but that is not always the case. Anyway I think you are doing great and your quilt is beautiful. Keep up the great work!

Very nice job.  I like the secondary pattern you get when you put the blocks together. 

Is it just my imagination, or is someone (you?) standing on a chair, holding the quilt, in order to take a photo of the quilt?  Big quilts can be fun to photograph!

Yes, there is someone standing on a chair. My tiny seven year old son LOL. Really this quilt is a lap quilt, it's not that big, he's just a tiny little thing.

I like the pattern's simplicity.  The colors are wonderful and very classic.
