i finished my first quilt a couple of weeks ago. it was a long, long process, about 5 months. and as you can see from the pumpkins, i started it in the fall. i have to admit most of that time was spent not working on the quilt. when i finally started up again it was done in no time.
i just made a basic quilt out of squares of fabric. the striped fabric was leftover from using it in the living room to make valences. i think it is just fabulous, flaws an all, and matches the living room quite nicely.
