My First Quilt!

I've been wanting to make a quilt for a while now, but up until recently have been to nervous to take it on. I finally sucked it up and made this for one of Lyndon's Christmas presents.


It's a Mini I Spy Quilt from Make and Takes. If I had known it was going to be this easy I would have made it a long time ago. The bias tape and I had a couple arguments, but other than that it was SUPER easy!! I think I might be ready to tackle another...after my four million Christmas presents are done of course!

That's a great quilt! I just have to ask, Where did you find the Yellow Submarine fabric? I spotted Ringo right away. Fantastic work!
