First Completed Quilt

I've been doing so many projects lately! My step mom has been here for the past 10 days or so and has helped me get a handle on quilting with the long arm machine that we are borrowing from one of Sam's co-workers. IT"S SO FUN!!!!!! We decided to do a practice quilt just to make sure the machine was adjusted properly and working just right before starting on the ones that she has taken so much time to piece together beautifully for the boys.
The practice one turned out so good that I decided to bind it and keep it in the car for an emergency blanket. Here's how it turned out.

And here's a picture of my awesome step-mom with her funny spectacles. I think I chuckle every time she does this. By the way, in this picture, she is ripping out a BIG mistake that I made. I wasn't going to fix it, just work around it, but she insists that "if its worth doing, it's worth doing RIGHT." So she ripped it out, and I re-did it. What an awesome assistant....haha not! She's such a professional and I'm such an amateur. Thanks Madre for being patient with me!!!!!
