I always swore I would never quilt..I never found a pattern I liked, and I just didnt really "get" them.

Recently, after losing my patience with trying to fit my insane body I needed something to help me chill out and relax a little. I decided that straight lines were the way forward..





Not perfect, but not bad for my first time.

I love it!  Great choice of colors and fabrics.  Did you quilt it with a machine, by hand, or tie it with yarn?
