My First Quilt

For my very first quilt, I followed Alissa's Doll Quilt Tutorial on the Sew Mama Sew blog. Now, seeing as how I have two boys, I didn't really have a doll in mind. But it's getting plenty of use. Here's the color scheme:

And here it is all cut and layed out:

The colors were a little wild, but I just bought some random cheap fat quarters since it was my first quilt. My baby loves it! It makes an excellent lovey for him, and I think the color brightness and contrast is what makes it the best for him. Here it is all finished up:

I think a few more of these are in my future for loveys for my kids as well as gifts. I defintely recommend this tutorial to anyone starting out with quilting. It was very easy to follow and I love the result!
