Quilt Festival Quilt

I am not new to sewing but I am very new to quilting and blogging.  My very first quilt (done the right way) is the one I am showing in the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  I have muddled through some in the past, but had no idea what i was doing.  I decided to take a beginning machine quilting class with a friend at work and this is what I made.

I am very happy with the way it turned out and think I will just hold on to it forever because it is really special to me since it is the first one.  (I may change my mind later, but for now I want to keep it.)  Around the same time I decided to take the class, I began a blog and decided to chronicle the making of my quilt.  I love blogging and all the bloggy friends out there that give me such inspiration and encouragement.
