    That came out great, its very pretty a good pattern to start. I made one jean quilt and it will probably be my last. It is heavy and very hard to work on so don't let it discourage you. Your off to a great start :D

    I love that pattern. Blue is my favorite color, and the yellow gives it just enough life to be interesting. I just did one sort of similar for my new granddaughter. Pictures of her and the quilt should be up soon.

    Rats, hit a button..
    Second attempt.

    First quilts are for learning. Enjoy the colors you work with, the idea you finished a project, the comfort it gives while snuggling. Don't beat up yourself if the corners do not match perfectly ! The craft is a tough one. While working on a project it is similar to looking at an elephant with a magnifying glass !! Stand back, breath and pretend you have never seen the project before ! You will enjoy your job so much better !!

    Congratulations !!

    I like your layout and the colours very nice work done already. My quilting sometimes gets a tad uneven also most time if it ain't off by too much I can pick it up at the end. I still make alot of mistakes by just not paying attetion to what I'm doing lol. You wouldnt wanna see the mistakes that's gotten covered up . lol happy quilting.
