This is the first quilt I've made...and I was quite proud of my efforts!

I even handsewed the binding - which I was dreading, but in the end found quite relaxing...

There are more photos on my blog if you are interested - don't want to overload you here! Smiley  http://shelleymade.blogspot.co.nz/2012/01/my-first-quilt-finale.html

Thanks for looking!

You did an awesome job with this! I love the fabrics and colors and your binding looks good. I actually like hand sewing binding too - you're right, it is relaxing Smiley.

You really should be proud of how that came out, esp for your first quilt! 

What fabric line is that?  My daughter would probably LOVE something made from some of that - esp the little people and the small castles around the edges!

Thanks everyone!  The fabric is Lizzy House Castle Peeps

This is so cute!  I made a couple quilts before hand sewing the binding and I can't believe how much I like it.  Hand sewing, to me, makes the binding look so pro too... awesome that you dived right in!

It's amazing what you can teach yourself by Googling! Smiley  There are some great tutorials out there, and no one I know quilts - so I'm very grateful to those tutorialists (is that a word?) for putting me on the right path. Smiley

That's a beautiful quilt. I can just see a child having wonderful adventures with princesses and knights and dragons on it. Smiley

I'm in the process of handsewing the binding on a blanket I knit. It is painfully slow! But hopefully will look as nice as yours when I'm finished.
