Happiness is cross stitching blog

My first hand made quilt is now finished.

Here is the picture of my first hand stitched quilt that I promised to show, I started it in 2005 and I have only just got around to finishing it. I usually like quilts made in pastel shades and floral designs but on this occasion I decided to stitch something very bright.
I made this to see if I would like making quilts before I decided to embark on a much larger project, I hope you like it!
Edited : A few of you asked me if this is Mary Engelbreit quilt fabric – yes it is.

Thankyou for taking part in my poll, the results are displayed at the top, it has helped me decide what to stitch for my blog anniversary in July.
Happy stitching and thankyou for your visit!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Wow Lynn, this is so beautiful.

    I started a patchwork too. The patchwork is finished but I'm having trouble to quilt it. I think I need to practice more on it. It is my first one and I want to hand quilt it too.
