    I'm embarrassed!

    I finished my first quilt which was a rag quilt for my 3 year old son. Well I hope no one looks to closely as the seams don't match up at all! My only defense is that it was my first time doing a quilt and using a sewing machine.

    It will mean a lot to your son, because his mom made it.

    Nobody but another quilter will ever notice, I promise you! I grew up with my grandmother's quilts and always thought she and her quilts were perfect. Then became a quilter and started really studying them and discovered to my surprise that HER blocks don't quite line up sometimes either and I never, ever noticed! I've owned some of these quilts nearly my whole life and I treasure them all. My husband & I use one of her quilts on our bed that she made for me when I was 16, even though it's too small for the bed. It's the coziest quilt we own and he loves it almost as much as I do - we wrestle over it all the time, LOL.

    Your son will love that quilt forever.

    I burned my first attempt. I made all my mistakes on that one. Don't worry about it. Just keep quilting.

    Don't be embarrassed! I couldn't thread a sewing machine three years ago and can't believe how much I've learned.
    We all start somewhere and never forget: 'Better finished than perfect'! That and, 'A blind man would be glad to see it.' These are the two sayings I keep uppermost in my mind .
    Happy quilting!
    Lang may yer lum reek.

    Hahaha, I have a patient that paid $300 + for a quilt, I got to looking at it one day, because I like the pattern. And too my surprise many of the seams on it didn't match up, lol. So just be proud you finished your first one and get ready for the next.......good luck
