everybody has a first: the grand finale

so here it is, my first quilt!

i didn't have a chance to get a really great photo of it since, in my usual style, i finished the binding at the last second and had to rush off to the airport to catch my flight back to NYC. anyway, i'm pretty happy with it.

here's the front.

and the back.

and the binding.

i've never really been one to make new year's resolutions, but because of this quilt, and how it made me feel to see it to completion and give it to someone i care about, i'm going to make one for 2011.

i hope this blog and the production of many more exciting projects will be the result of my goal to spend more time working on a part of myself that i've avoided - for one reason or another - committing to. my creative side.

happy 2011!


  1. Beautiful strong design. You have every right to be quite proud of your work. Keep it up!

  2. Great job!
    I agree with you about not getting fabric pre washed. This is a reminiscence of the past, when fabric used to shrink and colors weren´t permanent. Let´s trust they won´t either shrik or stain!
