"First Quilt" by Vonda

This was my frist quilt, And like every quilt I ever met, it has a story. We were in the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee about 8 years ago and stopped by a side-of-the-road quilt shop to look at the great quilts that were hanging outside. This lady had a quilt made from square pillow tops with deers on it. My DH remarked, " I don't know why you couldn't make one like this." This was in May. And with our anniversary coming up in September I made this one for him.

Here is a closeup of the top:

Great job for your first quilt!!  I'm working on my first quilt, also with a Smoky Mountain theme....black bears.  Without knowing the first thing about quilting, this full size spread in being hand sewn, and of all things, I ended up doing trapundle (I think that's how you spell it).  Hope my finished quilt will look as good as yours.  Right now, I need encouragement to finish...padding the bears is getting tedious.
