Triangles!

 I'm so happy that my (first ever!) triangle quilt is complete!

I absolutely LOVE it . . . and so does everyone else in my family!  I think it has something to do with the super-soft swirly minky backing.  It was a bear to quilt -- it shifted so much that I'm shocked that the back looks as good as it does.  I had to keep taking out pins and smoothing it down while I was quilting.  Now that it's finished, though, I think it was all worth it!
