TGIFF - Three Sides to Every Story

It's been a while since I've posted a finish, and I am so excited to share this quilt with you!  I have loved every part of making this quilt!  I loved the fabric when I first saw it, I loved piecing the triangles, I love that I quilted it myself, and I love the final product!

If you've been following me for a while, you may remember when I pieced this quilt top.  It was at an in-town retreat I went to back in January 2013.  Most of the fabric is Mama Said Sew by Sweetwater for Moda.  I added the borders a little later that same year and then it just sat, waiting to be quilted.

Last spring, when my mom and I decided I would be learning to use the long arm machine this fall, I added this top to the pile of quilts I would learn on.  I was so excited!  I told my mom it was one of the first quilts I wanted to do.  She knows how much I love this quilt, so she suggested I quilt another one first so I get a feel for the machine again before tackling such a special quilt.  So this is the second quilt I quilted last week while over at my mom's.

I love the micro dots for that inner border and binding!
 I got the binding on in no time and last weekend, we went to the park to get some photos.  My husband got a new lens for the camera and wanted to play with it, win-win!!

I haven't decided where to put this quilt yet but it has already been used by my little one.  I know this will be a well loved quilt as it is the perfect size for snuggling under with a good cup of tea!

 I am linking up to TGIFF over at Sew Fresh Quilts, where Lorna has a cute little fox & friends quilt.
