Default I made my first quilt!

I started this throw quilt a little over two years ago and finished the binding late last night. We are keeping it to use in the living room, though I suspect this means I have to make a few more.

Very well done! You must have a lot of prior sewing experience even if this is your first quilt.

I would say I have a moderate amount of sewing experience, mostly with smaller stuff. I do want to expand my skills and am trying to carve out more sewing time.

So pretty! Did you buy the fabrics especially for the quilt, or did you have it left from other projects? Your models are cute.

I used a layer cake fabric set - very handy for getting started without making a bunch of fabric decisions! The pattern can be found here. http://https://blog.fatquartershop.c...quilt-pattern/
