My first quilt!!!!

Ya.... not the greatest!  Ignore the yellow rows that are fairly off center.

I have made quilted blanket tops in the past but I always went the less 'scary' route of flipping them inside-out to sew the edges then turning it right side-out again to finish.  This was the first time I did a real quilt binding.  It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be (though binding in general never looks very nice for me - I know I just need practice).  I can't seem to make the back edge line up nicely with the front of the binding.

Well it was a learning process and the next will be better.  I do feel kind of embarressed that I am giving this away (it was a service project for a local shelter).  I am hoping the toddler who receives it (and his mother) don't notice its messy construction.  It is solid though and should hold together well and keep them warm.

I already want to make another one :)
