Second Official Making Monday

The progress so far on my first ever quilt.

So far I like quilting. The patchworking was super fun. I was intimidated at the thought of quilting since I was afraid my sewing machine would just chew up all my work, but it's handling the extra thickness pretty well. I just lengthened the stitch a bit, and it's all good. The hardest part is handling the rolled up quilt, as it's a bit unwieldy. I'm using a natural shade of organic flannel which makes it incredibly soft. I can't WAIT to curl up on the couch with this.
