First ever quilt completed- Feeling acomplished

Hi All, I have been super nervous about making a quilt (always felt like I couldn’t make it perfect enough) but decided to give it ago and I am so proud of myself for doing it. This quilt is actually part of a baby shower gift for a friend who is having her rainbow baby so I thought this was a cute way to celebrate it without doing a traditional rainbow shape. I am just so excited I had to share it!!

You’re obviously a natural quilter, because this turned out gorgeous! It’s a wonderful gift for your friend and a clever way of incorporating a rainbow! I also really love the black with white binding and the white with black backing - great scale of the prints and a wonderful contrast with the colors on the front.

Quilts are so intimidating! You concurred it by making an absolutely beautiful one. All your lines look so perfect. I am sure your friend LOVED this gift. So personal and sweet. Love the polka-dotted fabrics too. You should be super proud and showing this off to everyone!

Wow. You did such a great job picking out the fabrics! The rainbow is subtle but gorgeous! I love the binding and the back too. You’re a sewing wizard. The anxiety about making a quilt perfect enough and square enough is a fear of mine too. Maybe you’ve motivated me to start working on a project I’ve had the supplies for for years? I hope so. Thanks for the inspiration and sharing!

I have actually had a look at the quilting craftalong- it looks very interesting but also a bit overwhelming
