    I did it!!! :) I finally finished my first quilt. I learned alot with this. I have a few flaws but now I know how to correct it so I am anxious for the next project. One thing that will help is that hubby is going to get me a walking foot. That was one of the biggest pains, trying to put on the binding. I got the pre packaged stuff and with the thickness my material drug some so my sewing lines are a little jagged to say the least. I tied it and that wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, just time consuming! Anyway, I am done and proud....lol

    Nice first effort. I don't think anyone will know it's your first unless you tell them. You're right, the walking foot makes a lot of difference. I didn't hear of them until my 3rd or 4th quilt. I was amazed at how much easier it was to get the binding on straight. Keep quilting, you are off to a wonderful start!
