Elm Street Quilts Repeat QAL

I have been so busy lately I didn't think I'd finish the Repeat QAL, but I DID!

Elm Street Quilts

Here's my "Quilt" quilt.

My requirement for this quilt for myself was that it be made with fabric that I love.
I have Droplet from Doe by Carolyn Friedlander and Lotta Jansdotter's Tipu Bird

I used the traditional piecing pattern (which was great) from Patty at Elm Street Quilts
I added the pinwheel block.

It turned out pretty well--a little wonky in places 
(I think next time I'll use her paper pieced patterns)

I was a little more bold on the back with this fun Lizzy House print.

I'm most excited because this is my very first machine quilted quilt.
It's not perfect, but I didn't ruin the quilt!  That's been my biggest fear.

I'm doing a happy dance!  I have enough confidence I may even quilt
a slightly larger quilt in the near future.  Look out here come some finishes!!

I didn't get any process pictures because I couldn't find my camera
--I don't know how it always gets away from me, but it does.

I'm so pleased with how this turned out!

Thanks so much Patty for doing this quilt along!  I'm going to make the whole quilt sometime.
