My first keeper!

I am so happy to finally have a quilt of my own. Don't get me wrong, I love giving away my quilts but there's something thrilling about making one just for yourself. I finished my Verna quilt a week ago but I was delaying unpacking my uni boxes as long as possible and I didn't want to put in my room until I was done.

It came to the point when I realised I had to bite the bullet before Tiger claimed it for good.

A good 6 hours of tidying later and I felt I had a room fit for my lovely new quilt so here it is in all it's bed-adorning beauty.

I'm really glad that I went with the quilted motif instead of attempting FMQ. I need a lot more practice and I think I would have ruined my little pretty.

I can't wait to climb into bed tonight but I have 100 more half-square triangles to trim before that's allowed :( Back to the cutting board!


  1. Your quilt is beautiful! It is nice to keep one, once in a while :)

  2. Really awesome! I do keep quilts for myself and I love them. I rotate them out on my chair, my bed, on my display rack, etc.... I think my home should reflect the people who live here and my quilts reflect me and my hubby's hobby reflects him - it's all good :-)

  3. And a great keeper it is too!!

  4. That`s a very lovely quilt and I ahve yet to keep a quilt for myself although I have a WIP - I found you through the HAL discussion thread and look forward to doing the HAL along with you - once I`ve chosen my fabric!

  5. I finally made one of my own too. I even sent it out to be quilted exactly the way I wanted. Spoiled me.
