My first bed size quilt

I'm getting on great with my string blocks for the string challendge being held over at, I'm really enjoying doing them and seeing the piles of scraps go down.

The first single bed quilt I finished last year was a disappearing nine patch made from a moda scrap bag.

I had treated myself to a new sewing machine with a 1/4 in foot so this was a great way to practice getting my seams and corners to match. It went wrong in a lot of places but it was better than my previous efforts. I added a couple of plain borders and used my new walking foot for the straight line quilting.

I pieced the back with some leftover from the scrap bag to finish it off.
