"The Quilt" - Part 1

I'm starting my first quilt. For a number of reasons, I haven't been able to get into quilting before, but I've been motivated to start it since I have all the parts, acquired from a neighbor's yard sale last year for a song. It hasn't been named yet, so I'm calling it "The Quilt" until I find a name for it.

I'm having a hard time deciding how to start it, but I started by seam-ripping the three partly done pillow shams. There are enough pre-cut squares for the fourth. Putting them all together, it will make a nice sized lap quilt.

The quilt is a hunting/forest/lodge in the woods theme with four different fabrics for the front, shown in the above picture, and one lighter beige for the back.

This will be the last post here with pictures for a few weeks because my camera is currently back where it came from receiving some servicing under the warranty. In the meantime, I'll be blogging over at our family blog, catching up on all the traveling, family reunions, and other fun things that have been going on in our life these past few months!
