Yesiree people, I did it. I sewed my very own quilt from start to finish. I'm seriously so excited about the fact that I did it. For some reason, sewing a quilt was one of those things that I thought was too hard and I'd never be able to do. Only really good sewers could do that. I'm happy to say I've proven that wrong! I've only been sewing less that 2 years now. So if I can do it, anyone who knows how to sew can.
Here it is, my pride and joy!
Grayson approves of it too.

I really love the fabric for the backing, so pretty. It matches one of the squares on the front.
I actually won the squares of fabric on another blog's giveaway. It is the Ruby charm pack by Moda. (A charm pack is a coordinating set of fabric pre-cut into 5 inch squares.) Winning the squares was what inspired me to make my first quilt. So glad I didn't have to cut out all those squares! Cutting out the rest of the cream and red pieces was plenty of work.
I quilted this on my own sewing machine and even hand sewed the binding on.
I love it. It's actually a gift for someone else. I can't say who because they may read my blog. But I doubt it, which is why I'm posting pictures of it anyways. Plus, I'm just so stinkin' proud of this baby! Speaking of which, when I find out if my baby is a boy or girl I'm definitely going to start another one for him/her. :)
