My first quilt!

It's finished!
I made this quilt for a fundraiser at my daughter's preschool.  The last two years my mom has made lovely quilts to donate.  I helped out a little last year, but this year I wanted to try and do it on my own!  I found this great tutorial for how to make a quilt in 6 weeks at a blog called I Have to Say...
It took me less than two, but I needed to get it done so it could be on display!

The instructions are great.  So if you think you've been wanting to try a quilt...GO FOR IT!

Here is my finished product!

I made those two little angels in the back too!  :)








Join us Saturdays at tatertotsandjello.com for the weekend wrap up party!
