My first patchwork quilt

I have just finished making my very first patchwork quilt and I have to say I am quite pleased with it.
Most of the fabrics came from op shops and I used thicker wadding instead of batting which meant a bit of puckering/ bubbling with the very thin backing fabric when doing the quilting but with just a bit of unpicking it turned out okay.
The quilt block I used came from Ashley at FITF thank you Ashley I couldn't wait to try it out as soon as I saw it.

Here's hubby holding it out in the autumn sunshine for me.

Wow Baukje!
Your quilt is beautiful. I tried to make one once but it didn't turn out anywhere near as good as yours. Beautiful work.
