I then took a deep breath...for a very long time... and after basting:
And some straight line quilting in the sashing.
And you know what? I'm pretty happy with it. It measures 40" x 40" and hopefully it'll spend much of it's life being loved and dragged around and snuggled. I think that is a very nice way to spend your life if you are a quilt.
The most exciting part? I think this makes me a quilter! :)
