I've made a few patchwork pillows and a small quilted purse, but this was my first quilt.  It was from a pattern in a issue of Quick Quilts.  It was designed for sunflower fabric, but I really love leaves, so I chose to use leaf fabric instead.  The front is entirely hand-pieced until the orange border, at which point my parents gave me their sewing machine.  The back is machine pieced, and the border is machine sewn/hand sewn down the back.  I learned a WHOLE lot about measuring/cutting/marking seam allowances in the process, with the final effect of it being not quite to the size in the pattern.  It was a good learning experience, and it may have been a bit ambitious, but it was FUN!.

Begun in October, finished New Years' Day  Cheesy



The front, across my papsan chair



The back, with a corner turned to see how it reversed (sort of haha)



And the front again on my twin bed to show size (please forgive the mess  Wink )

Thanks for looking, any input greatly appreciated  Cheesy

Pretty!  I love fall colors, and the leaf fabric is really beautiful.  Great work - especially doing so much of it by hand!

What a truly excellent job! I can't believe that it's your first quilt!
I love your fabric choices, and the overall composition.
Very cool.  Cheesy
