My first quilt: progress

I started a quilt about a million, er, two years ago. I sewed the first row of squares, half the second row, and then my sewing machine pooped out on me. I set the whole thing aside and recently found it when I dove back into my fabric stash (and acquired a new sewing machine).

Last night I put aside everything else I wanted or needed to be doing and finally sewed the rest of it together.

It is not perfect. You can see the far left rows are not lined up at all, but I don't care. It is going to be for family picnics and such, so I'm darn proud of it. Now I have to figure out what to do next.

I will say, the whole process was addicting, and I expect to make more quilts. Sooner than later.
