The block. For my first quilt I stayed with one block only.
Playing around with the layout, since it was my first quilt and I was worried about the points matching up I decided after looking at it this way that I needed sashing.
Here you can see it together, and you can see the hand quilting, I did outline quilting since this was my first time. I was worried after I was about half through because I had read that some quilters don't recommend outline quilting. I was worried that when it was all said and done I wouldn't be happy with it, but I think it turned out beautifully.
All quilted, and the backing and batting trimmed, and ready to put the binding on.
Finished! Here you can see the binding, I had thought about doing green or blue, but my boyfriend didn't want it to look like an "Easter egg" as he called it, and I'm actually glad I went with a neutral.
The Label I did with hand embroidery
