Doing my Super Happy Dance!!!

Today I finished my first quilt ever. I started working on it mid-July of 2009 and just finished it today. I machine pieced it all from apattern that I made up. I hand quilted about 345 individual squares and hand stitched the binding on it. I love it so much and can't wait to use it on the bed. And I am so glad that it is done!!

This is a close up of the quilting with the backing and binding in the lower left corner.

This is me holding the quilt- don't I look excited :)

Hopefully now that this big project is done I will have time to work on some other projects- here is a review of my August goals (Yes I know September is almost over :) ).

1. Finish quilting the border of the quilt.- yes (well not in August, but its done now)
2. Start on Lizzie Kate- Dogs leave paw prints on your heart.- nope
3. Start on 4th Classic Care Bear for baby quilt. - yes- I have started on Bedtime Bear- looking pretty cute so far.

Goals for October-

1. Finish Bedtime Bear
2. Start on Lizzie Kate- Dogs leave paw prints on your heart

Super duper amazing! I just finished my first quilt: a strip one that took me a week. I did it all by machine and I was so proud to give it to my niece for her birthday. Best wishes!
