    Thanks all! I'm really excited now. I was a bit discouraged last nite. The cutting took forever and when I realized I sewed a few pieces wrong, I called it a nite. I felt like a failure.

    But I woke up this morning with a new sense of excitement and couldn't wait to get started on it again.

    The BF has already requested that I make a denim quilt for him out of his old jeans (I swear the man has saved all his jeans going back to when he was in HS!)

    Now i have to figure out how to rearrange my office/craft room so that I can put in a sewing table. Or at the very least, get a case for it. Pulling the machine in and out of the box everytime I want to sew is tedious. I want to do a little sewing now since the kids are in bed, but it's too much of a hassle.

    I look back on my first quilts and I didn't have a clue - but I was happy with what I had accomplished. That't what this is about. We learn as we go and we have fun on the way. Just enjoy. I've only been quilting about 3 yrs and wish I had the time to do this for the last 50 yrs. enjoy!

    I wouldn't worry about any mistakes you might find in your quilt. Everybody but one on this board has made mistakes sewing their quilts. That one person... well, he's special.

    It looks fine. Take your time, it will all work out.
