Mother-In-Law's Quilt

Late, late at night, my dh and I snuck into my mother-in-law's room and draped her with her birthday gift.  Thanks to my friend Kelli, I was able to give her something that she really liked.  We had a quilting class, and while I can sew, I was afraid that this was going to be way above my skill level.  I've only pieced one other quilt; well, technically, it was a table runner.  I stitched it up by hand and that's so very different from machine stitching.  The fabric on this baby kept scrunching together as if I was trying to gather it, which I so wasn't.  I loved the color combination and will definitely try another one.  Maybe I can get those bumps to lay down.
