I finally finished my first quilted quilt! (I've done tie-quilts before this)
And I'm just so excited about the results!!!



I wasn't so sure about the fabrics at first... before the blocks were put together, they just didn't seem to mesh...



But once I kept going and got them together- I was THRILLED with the results and so glad I stuck with my original decisions!



I recently took a lesson on a long-arm quilting machine at my LFS. Now I'm hooked!!!







I finished the binding by hand... painful on my fingers- but SO worthwhile!!



And the result!!!



I have a full review and link to the pattern source on my blog: www.elementalcraft.blogspot.com

I love the quilting. I am still mired in stitch in the ditch but this simple meander looks great!

I've watched you work on this quilt and struggle with the fabric selection.  Seeing it finished I know you must be thrilled with the result.

AAAHHHH I LOOOOOOOOOVE THIS!

So pretty.  I have a friend who is pregnant, and if she ends up having a girl, I'm SO making her a quilt with the apples and pears fabric that you used. 

You did a beautiful job!  I love it!
