After having moderate success with the table runner I made from a "Sew Sampler" box, I decided to try something bigger from jelly rolls that came in another box.  This is the largest quilted thing I've ever made and even though it's a little puckered in places I'm still pretty proud of it.  Finished size is about 38" x 50".  The cat has already claimed it and it's covered in cat hair.  



A picture before it had binding


I did a pretty simple quilting pattern- basically stitch in the ditch.


During this experience I've discovered that while I like quilting, I hate binding.  In spite of that I'm already working on my second quilt.  Thanks for looking!

So pretty!  Love those colors together.  They just make me happy.  Happy as your cat, apparently! Smiley
