This weekend was my cousin got married, and I decided to seize the opportunity and make my first quilt. yaaay! I'm not a very precise person, so by no means is everything perfect (i didnt put up a picture of the back for a reason lol). Here are the pics...they are all from my laptop's video cam because i didnt have a camera, so the quality is a little iffy but here we go...

the rows arent actually slanted like they look in this pic, i think that the rug it's sitting on had a lump or something going on.
i think this pic may show the colors better

and here's a close up

It's probably about the size of a lap quilt and it has a medium weight filler. I've never learned how to quilt or anything, I just found the pattern here http://quilting.about.com/od/quiltpatternsprojects/ig/Free-Quilt-Patterns/Black-White-Red-Quilt.htm and decided to give it a go! The pattern was far from perfect, but it gave me the general idea of how to construct the quilt. I hope that my cousin likes it!!!

The fabrics are gorgeous and the colors look wonderful together.  It's a really good first quilt.  I also like the fact that it's a strip quilt. I've been wanting to try one for a while, but keep getting stuck with squares.  Smiley

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.
