My first quilt

It's bad, I know, but isn't everyone's??? I really had no idea how to do the center, so here's what I did: 1) the sun rays are made with 2 layers of fabric sewn right sides together and then turned inside out (OMG, how hard was that?) and then appliqued to the background; 2) the face of the sun was put on with Heat-n-bond and never stitched down in any way; 3) for the outside border, each of those squares was cut out individually and sewn together at random; 4) the whole thing was hand quilted.

This little baby hangs in my sewing room. I don't hate it, but every time I really think about it, I think of how differently it would go together today!

Hope you are all well and happily stitching!
