My First Quilt: CHECK!

I did it! I finished my very first quilt! I put the last stitches in the binding at about 1:30 Saturday morning and pulled it out of the dryer just in time to get it wrapped for LadyBug's birthday party Saturday afternoon!

Today I finally got a second to get some pictures of it to show you. I couldn't keep LadyBug off of it though. She insisted on dragging her toys on top of it and plopping her diapered butt right in the middle! Had I known she was going to want to be part of the photo op, I would have dressed her in something cuter :)




"Garden Blossoms"
Wild Thing pattern by ThimbleBlossoms
Sandi Henderson's Ginger Blossom fabric with snow Kona cotton
Finished February 12, 2010

It still needs a label, but I am calling it finished!

Hugs and happy stitchy wishes to you all! And thank you for all the sweet birthday wishes for myself and the LadyBug!
