So I thought quilting was just like sewing anything else.  I did not quite understand the time it takes, so I am truly blown away by the talent that posts on the site.  I made up my own pattern with scraps I had and kind of made everything up as I went along.  I used a turtoial on flikr for the mitered corners though.  I'm glad it's done and I'm very happy the only casualty was a needle.  There's more about it on my blog if your interested Smiley

Pretty color combo; I like how you integrated the plaid especially.

I am a HUGE fan of making things up as you go and I am also a huge fan of scrap quilts! I think it's a great first attempt!

This looks really really neat. It's very patch work quilty. Did you start with the center like a log cabin blanket? at least I think that's what it's called?

wow!  That is super creative.  I love that you just went for it on your first quilt!  I think you'll find that creative spark in yourself, that willingness to take a risk, will take you far.  I'm impressed.
