Christmas Quilt finished

Remember this post? Well, finally, the quilt is completed! I finished hand sewing the binding on Sunday night. I have to say, for my first quilt ever, I think it turned out pretty great! I know Christmas has come and gone,but I think this one will be used year round at my house, or at least until I make another quilt!

This quilt has been so close to being done for quite some time now...I hate hand sewing the binding, so that's why I kept putting it off. Now that it's done, I wish I had finished it sooner. I did all the quilting myself...for those who know....I echo quilted vertical lines on either side of each block.

the pieced back.....I love a pieced back!

It's already getting some use! that's me, curled up on the couch, hiding from the camera

I am so impressed! You are such an inspiration!

I started a small crazy quilt the year we got married... oh and how long ago was that now? I wish I had your follow through!

Sooo cute! I bought a lot of these same fabrics this year with the intention of making a tree skirt, your quilt makes me want to go get started right now!
