    This was a trial of errors. I was going to sell the first one I did, keep the second, but now I'm going to switch that due to crummy quilting. But, that's okay, I like them both.

    What went wrong? Everything. :roll: I am not a quilter, I'm a top maker.

    Here they are.

    Oh! I forgot to take a photo of the neat back fabric---I'll be right back.

    Hearts filled in spots that needed more quilting. Binding is pinned.

    The proof that stitching in the ditch with the fm foot does not work!

    Now I see where two more hearts should be added to the 2nd one.

    Karla,

    You're WAY TOO hard on yourself, girl!! :D Your quilting is awesome! I can't do a straight SITD with a walking foot!! :roll: A serpentine stitch is much more forgiving. :thumbup: I think when I make my first Irish Chain quilt, I'll consider making diagonal lines through the squares. I just love your colors and fabrics, too - so sweet. :D
