My quilt is done!!

Does this look familiar? Well, a while ago it I was going to quilt it and finish it off. When I laid it all out, I realized I had sewn the quilt completely crooked! I got so mad at myself for being a complete failure at sewing. So I shoved it in the back of the closet, never to be remembered again. I think my family knew it was a touchy subject. I'm sure they went around whispering to each other "don't mention that quilt Sarah started". I follow a lot of quilt blogs, so it wasn't easy to forget my pathetic excuse of a quilt lying at the back of the closet. I was suddenly driven to finish my quilt after reading a bunch of quilt blogs. So I worked on it like crazy, I had to cut a lot off to make it straight and it still isn't perfect. I am sort of sorry I used the fabrics that I did too. Some of them are really bright and don't really go with the rest of it. But I was poor at the time, so I just had to use what I had. It's finally done though, and I can say I made a quilt!!
The back of it.
Finally done....yay!

I don't think it's too colorful. I like it! It looks anthropologie-ish. :)

LOVE it! You finally finished it! I am so proud of you! I agree with Em. It looks very professional and I think you could sell it for a pretty penny. But I know you probably won't cause it took you so long. :) Great job!

Congrats! It looks awesome Sarah. And I agree with the above... it totally does look like an anthropologie type thing! Love it!
