Thank you, I am very happy with it.

As to how I am going to quilt it.  Machine and a simply grid is what I am thinking. At least across the main part where the different blocks are. Leave the thin boarder a lone then do something on the wide. Am thinking like a swag or something else simple not to hard to learn and do over and over something that repeats a lot and will fill it in.

I got a pattern for my next one. A pretty easy baby quilt

well and wonderment

It is done!

I finally picked a fabric for the back and got it done and the binding.  I am very happy with the way it all turned out.

I cant wait to see my daughter's face on the holidays.  It will be her 18th birthday to boot!!!

Now that i have completed one I am looking forward to my next one.

thanks for all the input and help
