So, this is my first quilt and im so excited about how it turned out! I really like it and its so warm and cozy!

I got the idea from this very awesome tutorial: http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/2008/10/how-to-make-ragged-squares-quilt.html  THANKS crazymomquilts! Smiley

I picked out all the fabric and it took forever to cut into all the squares, but now its finally done and I have a new bed!

check it out:
before i moved, in my old house


it is new matching room!


the back


Edit:

Here are two more, they are outdoor pics so the colour is more accurate in these!





thanks for looking! Cheesy

wow I love it.  Truly it is beautiful.  Thanks for inspiring me.  I've been buying bits for a while now.  Not quite there yet but I might start cutting.

thanks guys!  that means so so much to me!  It takes a lot of time to make a quilt (as im sure you know!) so in the end its like your own little baby,  so its nice to hear good things about it!

thanks Cheesy

That is really great for a first quilt!! It looks perfect and I am usually not a fan of pink but it does look really pretty
