My First Quilt

My first quilt is finally done! Started in February 2007 finished October 18, 2009. Yes, that is a long time, but in my defense I am making two identical quilts for the girls. I have Abby's completely finished.

I decided to string tie it instead of quilting it. I figured since it took me 2 1/2 years to get the tops pieced it would probably take me another 2 1/2 to get it quilted. And in my opinion quilts are made to be loved and used not works of perfection.

I let the girls each choose the fabric for their back strip and binding so they would be a little different from each other. Abby chose my favorite one, pastel purple with a lacy print.
