a proper quilt

After doing some research about how to actually make a quilt, I am finally finished my first. Picking out fabric colors was tough even though I used Illustrator to layout my composition before piecing it together. The backing is an old duvet cover I found second-hand many years ago that was serving as the bathroom curtain. It was almost about to fall apart and is faded from the sun so I'm not sure how long this quilt will last. After basting it with safety pins, I hand-quilted along the seam lines while watching tv (Karate Kid). Now I have a sore hand but I can't wait to make another quilt.
