My first completed quilt - it's not huge but makes for a great baby quilt. I loved the fabrics (gotta love fat quarters!) and enjoyed every minute of make it, even the mishaps and stitch ripping. Especially enjoyed the freehand machine quilting - I love to doodle and it was doodling with my sewing machine.

Next steps... tackling a queen sized summer quilt for our bedroom. Might need a bigger sewing table.

Looking forward to feedback and would love any suggestions you have, including future project suggestions and tips and tricks.

Really nice work!  Doesn't at all look like a first quilt!  I love the colors - the leaf/tree print is cool.

Once upon a time a girl named Indigo played with her Gran's sewing machine... the rest is fabric hoarding, sewing addicting history!

This looks great! Did you stitch the back? Was there a pattern that you followed?  Love the colors! Grin

Thanks! I didn't follow a pattern, just made it up as I went along. I did do free motion quilting on it, but otherwise did not do any stitching to the back. I used clear thread so that the pattern would show equally on all of the colours. It was my first foray into free motion sewing - loved doing it - would be much easier on a machine with a larger arm or a free motion machine. Will do it again though.
