My First Finished Quilt...

And so it is first quilt.
After several sewing classes and even a few on quilting, I finally took a beginner class to learn correct techniques! The pattern was for a quilt called "A Trip Around the World". I used mostly all Amy Butler fabrics (which are some of my favorite!!) and decided I'd make Angela's soon-to-be baby, Willow, a quilt.

I have heard it is tradition to give away the first quilt you make. And so...this one goes to Willow. I wrote out a few thoughts about my quilt that parallel a new baby. When thinking of the two, there are many similarities...I'm sure you could think of many!!

I love this quilt. It's a pattern I hope to use again and again...
