I've just been posting quilt tops on this board so far, but this is the first FULLY completed quilt.  I posted the quilt tops for this one a while back.

I had given the top and the backing/binding to my good friend whoopdedoo_5 to get it quilted since my machine wasn't about to handle it (actually, it broke altogether a week and a half ago).  I met up with her and freestyle in Chicago last weekend and she gave me the completed quilt. I'm SOOO excited since I've done so many tops and never seen one completed before. Smiley

Without further ado.... here it is!












Thanks for looking!

Oooh, so pretty!  I love it.  What size is it?  Did you use one or two charm packs?

It's 45x45" (kind of small).  I used 2.5 charm packs on this one, and I have another top getting quilted elsewhere right now (pink back with pink polka dot binding and yellow stitching with a butterfly pattern) that used the same amount. I bought 5 packs total.

I love it.  I have just started saving my fabric scraps to make a quilt similar to this.  I love all the little squares, it just feels so warm and cozy.
