This is my first quilt, Japanese Lightening. I took Quilting 101 with Monica DePalma at Eddie's Quilting Bee in Mountain View, California, and this is what we made. I am so grateful to my niece, Laurel, for lending me her wonderful Baby Lock sewing machine.
Here's a closeup of the block. It's a simple rail fence pattern, but when you're a newbie, it's a challenge! Stitching in the ditch sounded easy, too, but it wasn't!
This is a photo of the backing. I love the fabric!
