Today we are linking up with Melinda at West Metro Mommy for Super Saturday Snapshots.
I started my first quilt last December and figured it would take a couple of weeks at most to complete. I kept the design fairly simple but it ended up taking a lot longer than I expected. (I wrote a post about my progress back in April which you can check out by clicking here) I am happy to announce that I have finally finished the quilt and in time for my niece's birthday later this month. The quilt is 3ft (91cm) by 5 feet (152cm) so she can use it in the living room or even on her toddler bed. I am very happy that I was finally able to complete it. Below are some photos of the completed quilt.
The front of the quilt is a patchwork design with monkeys on it. I tried to keep the design fairly simple for my first quilt.
I chose this fabric for the back of the quilt.
The quilting pattern was wavy lines with leaves every so often. It is a nice effect without being too complex.

Now that this quilt is done I have moved onto my next quilt which is a bubble/biscuit quilt for my nephew that is due next month. I will post pictures of it once it is completed.
Have you ever made a quilt?
