Disapearing 9 Patch

Well I finally did it.  I made my first quilt... and can I just say that I really enjoyed it!  For years I thought my sister Jana was crazy for liking quilting so much but now I see just how wrong I was!  When I was in Utah over the winter break I found some great charm packs that were selling for cheap-o.  They were a Christmas theme and it was the week before Christmas so the price was right!  I had nothing in particular in mind when I purchased them but after I got them home I knew I wanted to make a twin size quilt and I wanted it to have a lot of white in it, I just love that look for some reason.  Anyway, long story short... this is what the final product looks like.

And I'll just apologize right now for the picture overload.  As you can see, I'm pretty proud of myself. :)

I'm proud to say that I did this quilt all by my lonesome from start to finish (well, with the exception of Jana helping pick back and binding fabric to match and my awesome friend Lesley who machine quilted the whole thing).  The binding was a intimidating experience but I pulled through and have a few ideas to make it a little easier on myself next time.

I learned a lot during this process and I'm excited to get going on my next project... a new blanket for Luke.  He has a long list of demands so I'd better get cracking!

No picture overload here, I could almost taste that beautiful quilt. Absolutely charming. Hurry, now, and do another one!

I love it!! You've done beautiful work and the colors work together great with the white. My quilt from the same day is cute, but not as cute as this one, and I still need to do the binding. Wow! I'm truly impressed.

It looks awesome! I love the pattern. I think it's time to find a quilting store, and find some cute fabric. Just hope I can get as good a deal as you did. Keep it up, and have fun quilting. :)

Seriously. That is beautiful!! I am so impressed! I have so many quilt ideas pinned on Pinterest but I am not ambitious enough to give it a go. Good job!
