Very cute Vicki! I love the scrappy look! :)

It looks awesome! I might sound dumb but does washing the quilt make a big difference? I always read about people saying how they washed the quilt and then it was "done". I am nervous about washing quilts. I just think that they will fall apart and all of my hard work will be lost! I guess that's silly though. Great finish!

Absolutely gorgeous!

Vicki said...

Thanks everyone for your kind comments!

Lauren, washing and drying usually changes up the texture of the quilt and makes it kind of crinkly and softer somehow. Especially if the fabric wasn't prewashed. If you use good construction and quilting techniques, washing shouldn't cause any problems to your quilt!
