My first quilt

I've been dreaming of quilting for a long time-especially around Music in the Park time when I see all these heirlooms brought out to sit on in the grass.  I made some mini quilts for practice last year and this year graduated to a baby size for my nephew, Miles.  I wanted something eye-catching and when I saw the dots I decided every square should be dots...I have a thing for dots and stripes.  I learned a lot of valuable lessons on this quilt and am excited to do another-maybe this fall.  I also have a bucket of high school t-shirts begging to be pulled out of storage and made into something so maybe that will be next.
