So here is my first patchwork quilt. It's been finished for a few months but I've finally got around to posting it.

It is *gets tape measure out*.. longer than my tape measure... 174cm by 95cm. I used squares that I bought from eBay (it's not cheating - it helps maintain your sanity) plus it meant I could use loads of different material. The story behind the red edging is that I bought 2 metres of the material with my birthday money and it was so expensive (in student terms) that I didn't want to waste a morsel.

Anyways I hope you like it. Patchwork quilts are so fun - if you haven't made one already have a go! Oh, and I machine sewed the whole thing - apart from the last edge which I had to do by hand.

Any comments will be gladly received!

It looks lovely! Nothing wring with using squares from ebay either! Well done!

It's lovely! Good job on your first quilt!!  Is it tied, or quilted?  I do like patchwork quilts, so much fun to use so many different fabrics.
