I made this quilt in honor of the birth of my daughter, my first child. It was my FIRST quilt ever! It is titled "Celebration" and took me about three months to complete. It is hand quilted and binded.
OK My handstitches are HUGE! I admit, but it was my first try and they are somewhat straight!

Its a keeper :) but if I could do it again I would probably use a different base color than this wood green.

But all in all it is a special quilt hat will hopefully be passed down for many generations. Thanks for stopping by.

Finally almost wrapped up!

I have been working on this quilt forever, with hand quilting lurking on my mind...BUT I *finally* invested in a walking foot for my machine and can't believe I live so long without one! I love it. Life has officially changed for me..hehehe
 It is not officially done as I am hand binding it now.
I want to be doing more of this.
