My Completed Quilt

I am truly excited about my newest quilt! My plan was to make the quilt a twin size so it could be used on Elizabeth's bed until I have time to make her one with lighter colors.
 The edge of the quilt hangs nicely on each side of Elizabeth's bed.
 I used the same fabric on the back as I did on the front; plus I added a strip of the light fabric to add variety.
 The quilting is just a variety of designs that were made up as I stitched away.
 Elizabeth is thrilled to be the one using this quilt first.
Here is how the quilt looks after we added some animals, a pillow and another quilt I made Elizabeth a few years ago.

It's so beautiful. You did such a great job, I bet Elizabeth is thrilled to be the first to use it. There's just something about "mama made" that is extra special.

Great quilt Patty!! The fabrics are a great combination. I like sampler quilts but have never done one myself! This looks really sweet in her room, especially after her animals joined in!!
