    My first finished quilt

    I've just put the final stitches into my very first quilt! It's by no means perfect, the back is a little wrinkly, but I am so pleased with it I am almost fit to burst

    The quilt is for my Mother, her birthday is on May 8th and I can't wait until I can hand it over to her.

    I stitched in the ditch and used the fabulous tutorial someone posted on the forum to put the piped binding on. The pictures show the quilt on my bed (UK king size) and close ups of the back and binding.

    Now I can't wait to make a start on my next one

    Thanks for looking!

    Sandra, this is gorgeous. I love it. Your mom will love it. Can't believe it's a first quilt. I'm working on my first now. Was the stitch inthe ditch difficult, scary? What color thread did you use?

    I got a sewing machine for my husband. Good trade, huh!?!

        Your quilt is beautiful. Love the colors. I'm sure your Mom with love it. How fitting that her birthday falls on Mother's Day this year when you give her the quilt.

            love your quilt! It looks great, just hope my first completed quilt (if I ever get one done) looks half as nice. Congrats!
