I Did It!
OK, it won't win any awards, but still...
...my first "real" quilt is finished!
(I made a full-sized one before, but I cheated and just used the fat quarters from the fabric store "as is" -- that is, I didn't cut them up into any interesting shapes or designs. Just slapped squares together and appliqued autumn leaves all over it. It's my husband's favorite quilt, but I digress....)
Now I'm going to have to ask you a favor, though... please click on the picture to blow it up. You'll see then that it's not quite as lopsided as it looks at first glance.
There are so many things I would change about this quilt, but I'm not going to beat myself up over it. I did it, I learned quite a bit from it, and hopefully Grace will like it... or at least chew on it a whole bunch...
