Quilt To Be

Another crafty project I've been working on after hours - my very first quilt!



Here are all my squares laid out, after much rearranging:



I know these night-time photos are totally unworthy of this blog but I couldn't wait till morning - there's a limit to how long I can get away with consuming the living room floor with my layout ;)

I decided to keep it simple because it's my first, but I wish I could have done something more interesting like these quilts that Cicada Daydream just posted about. Gorgeous! Oh well, next time...

Beautiful. I'm the same I am so impatient to get it out there. I've had quilt ideas for a while, but it looks like sooo much work.

Looks great - congrats on starting your first quilt. Layout can take so much time, like working a puzzle.

i have 'make a quilt' on my list of goals for this year. there is soemthing so appealing about them... i think it's the opportunity to use so many different pretty fabrics in the one spot!

I especially like how your squares show just enough of the patterns - not too small. Very peaceful color together as well...

The layout is very effective. I'll be really interested to see your progress. I'd love to take the plunge one day, but really wouldn't know where to start... hoping you could throw in a few 'in progress' pics?

Good luck with it!!
