First quilt completed

Amy at Amy's Creative Side is hosting the Spring 2011 Bloggers' Quilt Festival.  I have just started learning how to quilt and this is my finished quilt. The fabric was  picked out by my daughter as she thought it was very bright and bold. It now takes pride of place in the bedroom and it definitely brightens up the small room. I am so happy that it turned out so well as it was my first attempt. Thank you for allowing me to share this with you at Amy's Creative Side.
