I started this quilt the week I found out I was pregnant!...That was about 7 months ago, lol.  It took me a few months to finish it thanks to morning sickness and such.  Obviously I didn't know if I was sewing for a girl or boy so I made it gender neutral and was going for a "naturey" look.  I think it is pretty good seeing as it is the first quilt I've ever done by myself and the last quilt I did I was about 10!  I'm going to be making another one to match the nursery and hopefully it will turn out even better.  Smiley






There's a ripple on the back unfortunately, I'm not sure what to do about it, or if there is anything I can do?

That looks really awesome!  I don't know if there's anything you can do about the ripple, but it's not noticeable to me!  I love the nature-y look to the fabrics you chose, too!

Beautiful quilt!  A walking foot would have helped prevent the drag on the back of the quilt. 

You did a great job!

Thanks!  I'll have to see if my machine came with a walking foot, it came with a bunch of them.  Hopefully it did because otherwise I'm going to have to go to the craft store and try to come out with ONLY the walking foot...and I can never leave with just one thing!   Roll Eyes

I also really like the colors on this quilt.  I was able to order my walking foot online somewhere.  That kept me from buying too much at once.  I ordered both a walking foot for straight lines and a darning foot for free motion quilting, so you may want to consider that if you're thinking of doing more quilting.  Free motion quilting I am finding is a lot of fun. 

Nice Job!

Thanks!  I am definitely going to be doing more quilting, so I'll have to look into a darning foot as well.  Good tip about shopping online, it is much easier to control myself when I think about shipping prices!   Cheesy

I love this quilt!  I also like how you quilted just one straight line through the middle.
