Here are some images of my first quilt.  I took an introductory class at The City Quilter in NYC.  We all completed a four-block sampler quilt.  I used mostly Amy Butler fabric.  This quilt was made in April 2007.  Enjoy!

That is awesome! Especially for a first quilt. Did you put any batting in it?

It's gorgeous! I can't believe it is your first quilt. Great colors too.

Very nice!  The quilts on the Amy Butler site tend to make my eyes cross, they're so busy with all the prints, which also makes the square patterning difficult to discern.  Yours, on the other hand, really comes alive and shows off the fabric designs to good advantage.  The materials you chose are color coordinated but in a nice variety of bold and subtle prints, along with the solid blue; the red provides a vibrant contrast (while still echoing a color in the darkest fabric); and the the way you put everything together presents a lovely piece that feels both modern and traditional at the same time.

Very cute sampler quilt! 

You've had it since April 2007 -- what has its purpose been since then?  It looks like it would be a really fun wall hanging or a great baby quilt as a gift!

I started Crazy Mom Quilts' 12 block sampler last fall.  I only got through a few blocks, but this is an excellent example of what you can do with those blocks you have around the house!  Thanks for sharing.

The quilt was in a show at The Williams Club in New York for 3 months this year.  Otherwise it just lives on a shelf.  I take it out to show my friends to get them to sign up for the class I took.  That way I can have more local quilting friends!

Here's a picture of it in the exhibition:

I've seen this in person, and it's way prettier!  The fabrics are gorgeous and it's perfectly done.

I'm looking to send my Step-Sister's Choice quilt to a new home.  If you're interested in swapping for fabric/scrapbooking supplies, send me a PM.
