So, I'm almost done with my first ever quilt.
It's got lots of flaws, but all in all, I'm pretty satisfied. It has given me an idea of how much work goes into a "real" quilt, with the piecing, and stitching.. Yes, it is all machine stitched, since I have very little patience these days..

This is the quilt in it's entirety (It's approximately 25"X30")

This is a close-up of the squares.

And, this is the back - I have sewn on the front of the binding, and pinned it. It just needs to be hand-stitched to the back.

Looks great!

But since you have "very little patience these days", why don't you machine sew the rest of the binding?

Hmmm.. This sounds good, but I didn't know it was possible. I've used the Denyse Schmidt Quilts book, and she says that this part must be sewn by hand. What do I know?

I suppose I could machine quilt it, but since I didn't use wide enough binding, the binding strips are fairly tight across the front and back. I don't know if I could keep it in place while machine stitching it. (if that makes any sense).  Let me see what I can figure out...
