    First quilt

    So here is my first quilt, not real happy with it as the seams dont line up at all, but my 3 year old wont notice and I hope he loves it anyway.

    I think you did a wonderful job, just making your first quilt show how strong you are. I hear a lot of people say they could never make a quilt. I tell them any one can do it if they find out how, it just takes one step at a time. I hope you give quilting another chance, you will only get better with practice. Keep up the good work.

    i love the colors you used and how you placed them. It is beautiful!
    from here I don't see the errors that you see because YOU know where they are and I am not even trying to find them. All I see is beauty Bravo!
    congratulations for even starting to learn how to quilt. Now you will want to try again with another pattern and you will soon improve with each project

    First of all, the joy of a rag quilt is that the seams do not need to match up. Get most of your mistakes out of the way on the first quilt and do better on the next. It is also hard to line up seams on a rag quilt because you can't nestle the seams together. Love your quilt.
