It's Done!! YAY!

I worked on this quilt all day yesterday and it's finally all finished. I'm so excited that I've finished my first ever quilt. I did have a mishap, when it was time to sew the top, bottom and batting together I sandwhiched it wrong and had it all sewn and had to take it all apart. Took me about two hours to take it apart ugg! God taught me a lesson in patience with that one. After it was taken apart, I re-sandwhiched it and sewed it again. Luckily it came together fine and turned out great. I didn't quilt all over it I just tacked each square, I used orange thread and tacked the square with two little hearts each. The top 6 squares each have Leanne's name in them. So the top squares spell out Leanne and the rest of the squares have hearts. I have to say that I've been wanting to learn to do quilting for a long time and I'm so happy that I decided to dive into it. It's so fun and I am hooked. 
This is the back side of each square with the hearts.
