    Red face My First Quilt Finished!

    I finally finished my very first quilt. I started it last May for my 23 year old son who lost everything in a house fire last March. It is completely hand-sewn. I wanted to do something special, but had no idea how time-consuming it would turn out...so have done other things in-between. I really don't think I would have finished it if it weren't for this site and all you wonderful quilters! I have had all the flaws pointed out by my aunt yesterday afternoon. She was so critical I almost decided not to continue quilting, but after thinking about it and opening my SS package I thought about her situation and her health has deteriorated over the past few years so much that she can't do the things she used to, such as quilting. Maybe she will feel differently if I make her something, maybe for mother's day.
    here are pics...I hope you can see clearly, I'm not sure I uploaded the picture correctly.

    I don't see any flaws. You can quilt for me any day; it is beautiful and your son will love it!

    I think your quilt is beautiful. I'm sure your son will love it. Your aunt probably wishes she could still sew.

    I wish my first quilt came out SO GREAT!! You should be proud of your work....The only thing that could be more perfect would be manufacured by machine....And then it wouldn't have the love worked into it...Send you aunt an application for the quilting police--maybe they can keep her busy elsewhere!!

    OH, wow! Don't quit! You've got talent, to say the least.

    I think you're right about your Aunt...my Mom was the same way in her last years. She told me she'd forgotten more about quilting than I'd ever learn! She was probably right.

    You'll get 'there', where ever 'there' is for you. Enjoy your new hobby.

    Please don't take your aunt's criticism to heart. I think the quilt is wonderful!
