    And this second one will be better in some ways than the first, but I'll bet that each time you see your son snuggled under your first quilt, your heart will smile! Love bunniequilter's advice! That was just your first step, you only can go up from there! And you just started sewing? WONDERFUL! You have given yourself a gift that will return to you many times! Sewing anything is stitched from the heart, so keep up the great job and love your works in progress!!

    I smile when I look at my first quilt! But I'm so glad that i didn't stop at that trip around the world pattern that turn out to be a zigzag trip! I cut out each block with a cardboard pattern traced the pattern and cut out with scissors for I didn't know about rotary cutting. I have learned so much and have more to learn , but it is all so fun! Just enjoy and have fun learning!!

    I made baby quilts for my four grandchildren when they were born. They were my first quilts. I knew there were many mistakes, but no one else does. Two of the kids sleep with them all the time.

    Your son will love it, don't worry. My 16-year-old has a quilt that I made when he was a baby, all half-square triangles. It has large areas where the fabric has been worn through to the batting and he WON'T let me get rid of it!!

    Be proud of yourself. I bet your son loves it very much.

    Don't worry, the only ones that would notice a quilt police and quilt judges. I bet your son is neither and will treasure his quilt because you made it. After you have a few more under your belt it is fun to go back to see how much you have learned and improved since the first one. Quilt ON!

    Don't worry about seams that don't match!! You gave your sweet son a gift from your heart and hands. You will get better and better with each quilt. I have made quite a few quilts and learn something new from each one. My family loves their quilts and I love making them.

    I like that reply! And "wonky" quilts are very popular these days! Or at least that's what I'm telling myself about the Baby quilt I just made and FMQed, for a coworker. LOL

    Seems like a rag quilt would be the most forgiving for mismatched seams You can't be perfect right away! Chalk it up to practice and you're guaranteed to do better next time. Anyway, the beauty of a quilt for your child is in the love, not the technique!
