Ok, so i'm exhausted and don't want to type a lot. BUT I'm super excited about this being my first quilt. I love it! Would I make another one? Maybe. Full size? I'm not so sure! But this was easy, is not by any means perfect, but is great anyways. The pattern is very forgiving. It's inspired by Amy Butler's "Thea's Quilt".




I would LOVE some feedback! Smiley

Love the action shot, LOL!

Very pretty! The colors are fantastic, and I love the whimsical sort of feel to the block pattern. Doesn't look like it was very difficult; just time consuming, I suppose. It looks very nicely done. I want one for myself...

Great job on that beautiful quilt.  And it looks like it is already loved, that's the best kind of quilt.

Great first quilt!  It looks like a fun pattern.  No fussy matching precise corners/angles.

Thanks so much, everyone! This quilt was really a good way for me to try the process: easy, but still true to the basic nature of quilting.

gekkogirl, it's so rewarding to finish the darn thing. It's so easy to just leave them stored half done forever.

Ooh! I was just considering basing my first quilt on that pattern. Yours turned out great! I'm encouraged.
