    Love your first quilt!! And this was in '09. I'd love to see what you've done since that time. What courage it took to attempt that quilt as a first!
    One step at a time, always forward.

    As an animal lover with lots of materal with dogs, horses and wild animals, much of each, now I have a good idea for my first quilt. Bet your husband loves it. Great job!

    How big are the squares? They look like they could be 6.5", but looks can be deceiving. Just love it. With small space to work in I will be doing QAUG so always looking for ideas for my stash to make an animal quilt or 4-5. Carol

I had used a rotary cutter before for other things, so I knew how to use it, I had been sewing for literally years and years. I watched a show on it once, I had it covered, you will have to tell me if I was right in thinking that.
    Right on!! Beautiful! Great taste in color combo. Any sportsman/woman would love this one. First timer, huh? I've been quilting many years, and I admire you for a job well done and the preservance it took to complete. Just think where you'll be heading next. Could be a part-time job, with some earnings for your effort. (Think about it.) Would love to stop and chat, but got my hands full with a quilting task that has to be finished by Dec 17th. Hope to see more of your work later. Numbers 6:24-26.
