I'm so excited! I made my first quilt! It's a doll quilt and I used this tutorial from sewmamasew.
http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2009/02/sewmamasew-doll-quilt-sew-along-part-1/

It was very easy and fun to do! I have alot of Disney fabric, so I thought I would use some of my stash. I haven't quilted before, and it was fun.  I did stitch in the ditch machine quilting.





I think I might try one with a different pattern for the next one.
Thanks for looking!

Thanks! I would say, take it slow and read all the instructions. I did iron when it said to and that helped. I also made sure I didn't try to take any shortcuts.  I pinned with lots of safety pins.
I wasn't able to line up all my stitches directly "in the ditch", but I tried.
