Quilt #2

I made another quilt using Two Little Banshees' tutorial found here.  I really love this quilt pattern, it is so great for beginning quilters like me.

I did a much better job at quilting the horizontal and vertical lines this time, because I marked my quilt top and followed those lines.

I also used a really pretty variegated purple thread which stood out really nicely on the quilt. I made this for a very sweet teenager whose bedroom is ... you guessed it... purple and lime green!  I forgot to take a picture of her with it, but hopefully her Mom will take one and send it to me; if so, I will share it with you.

I can't wait to make more of these... they are so much fun and come out really pretty!

I love purple and green together as well!! Actually, I just finished a beach bag last night that is green and purple! I am considering making a quilt sometime...but am a little nervous because it will be a long project and I like the instant gratification of the smaller projects. Great looking quilt!
