Happy Tones Quilt - Done!

My very first quilt - hope it's not too obvious!  It seems to have turned out okay...of course, it hasn't gone through the wash yet, not sure it will survive that.  I have a new-found respect for's not easy!  And this is supposedly just a basic, simple quilt.  Thank goodness for YouTube and Bloggers, how did we ever learn how to do anything back in the day?

Front of the finished quilt:


The sandwich is pinned.  I used Fun Foam to cover the tips of the pins; just cut squares about 1/2" in size and poke them on the ends of the pins. Got this idea from Blair Stocker at:

Sewing w/the Janome AcuFeed Ditch Quilting Foot - fun!:

Wow - someone needs to straighten up this mess.

Now on to this quilt's all pieced and I would love to try free motion quilting on this one, don't think I'll attempt that just yet.  The fabric is Twice as Nice by Riley Blake - love the red and turquoise.
