Welcome to the Quilting Board!
What I make with my hands, I give with my heart.
Lovely quilt and great job!
I think you did a great job! And I wouldn't say "user error" I would just say all users have an off day now and again. I've done the same thing--feeling great about a project I just finished so I dive into a new one and nothing goes quite right. But we are usually our own worst critics. No one could tell by looking at your quilt that it didn't go as smoothly as you wanted it to. It looks great!
"Piecin' a quilt's like livin' a life...The Lord sends us the pieces, but we can cut 'em out and put 'em together pretty much to suit ourselves, and there's a heap more in the cuttin' and the sewin' than there is in the caliker...I've had a heap of comfort all my life making quilts, and now in my old age I wouldn't take a fortune for them." (Eliza Calvert Hall, Aunt Jane of Kentucky)
that is a REALLY pretty quilt! its cozy, homey, country, and looks very snuggly. i think you did great and keep practicing!

I like the rail fence pattern and have made several. FMQ looks fine to me. I do that on all my quilts, I love the look and I love doing it.
This life is the only one you get - enjoy it before you lose it.
It came out very nice!! Don't you just get frustrated thinking, "Oh, I've got this!" and then it just doesn't go as planned? Great job.
Humor is the great thing, the saving thing. The minute it crops up, all our irritations and resentments slip away and a sunny spirit takes their place.
Thanks everyone! Suzi loved it......she cried. At the end of the day that is what counts.
Now on to the next one!!!........:')......................
