I have been blogging off and on for quite some time, although at the time this quilt was made, I'm pretty sure I was off blogging.

This quilt was my first ever quilt., really my first ever sewing project outside of the shorts we made in 8th grade home ec...

this one was made almost three years ago when i was pregnant with that sweet sleeping baby. (who isnt so sweet anymore. just kidding!)

I was surprised at how easy a quilt like this came together, I was prepared for a whole lot more work! (although, if I remember correctly, I think I *did* put the two halves together backwards...the dark blue diagonal was supposed to be two shorter ones...or something.)

I handquilted this one, and have only hand quilted one since. handquilting is a heck of a lot easier when you dont have babies running around!
