Quilt #1 Complete!

As listed in my WIP Wednesday post last week I have finished my first quilt!  I'm over the moon about it and couldn't be happier (or more addicted to quilting).

I started this quilt *probably* in about January!  But then we bought a house, got engaged, moved, re-did most of the "new" house, got married and had the reception at our house, so it got put away for a while.  I used this tutorial which was very helpful and clear to follow.  Allison has tons of great tutorials on her website (including the one my mom is using for her first quilt) so be sure to check out her site when you have time- very inspirational!  I did some straight line quilting horizontally across the rows and then around the white center squares and the white borders.  Then I machine bound it using this tutorial because I am one of the most impatient people ever so hand sewing wasn't happening!

Stack n' Whack Stats:

Fabric- Random mix of bright fabrics I like from Joann's for the front, back and binding 

Pattern- Stack n' Whack tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew

Finished Size- Approx 52" x 66" 

Number of times I cut the backing wrong- 1,000,000 (there's a reason it's patchwork- you'd think I never took math! 

Be back Wednesday with another work-in-progress post!  Now I'm off to attempt to organize the disaster that is my sewing space :)
