I finished my first quilt!  It is a queen size quilt, and I have only made mini art quilts before, so this was a bit more time consuming, and a lot heavier! 



I loved this quilt at Film in the Fridge http://www.filminthefridge.com/2010/03/15/postcards-from-the-park/ and decided to make my own pattern for it. I love the slight wonkiness of it! (plus then I didn't have to worry about straight lines or matching seams!)  I used Anna Maria Horner's Little Folks Voile and white.  I machine quilted it in somewhat straight lines horizontally.



I learned so much from this!  The joys of the walking foot, machine binding, and how much fun it is!  And now to plan another quilt...

Thanks for looking!

That's really cool!  I like the inspiration one, too, but can't imagine piecing all that in the wonky way she did - TOO much time involved!  I keep thinking I'm going to make a quilt for my daughter's bed . . . maybe this will be the inspiration for that!  Great job.  Grin
