so after looking at some of the other quilts on here, mine is definitely not up to snuff, but i want to share it anyway.

a little back story... i live in an old building with very tall windows ( no lie, i'm 5'8" and can stand on the window sill and still have room). anyway, finding curtains was always a hassle, so  i decided to make my own. being a lover of color, i decided to use bandannas. no muss, no fuss, and no really long hem lines! i loved them so much, i decided i needed matching bedding. and thus the bandanna quilt was born! it is a little off because all the of the bandannas were not exactly the same size. the back of the quilt is random squares of flannel. i had to get a little creative on the back because i didn't have enough flannel, so some of the squares are four little squares, and some are triangles. but it's warm and cozy, and that's what matters! i quilted it around the inner squares on the bandannas. i made this quite a few years ago before i had a real sewing machine. i used one of those mini ones. and this is the project that killed it. my reward was a real sewing machine. Cheesy and an awesome quilt. i forget exactly how big it is because i have since acquired another blanket and haven't used this in a while, but i think it will fit a queen bed (which is a bit ridonkculous right now, because my bedroom only fits a twin bed). it's 5 bandannas across and 6 bandannas long.

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know
