    I've learned so much...

    This is the first quilt I ever pieced. I started it several years ago and due to one issue after another never finished it. This weekend I pulled it out and decided wonky or not, points or no points I was going to quilt it and it would be done. Most of the points disappear into the seams, as I tried to machine quilt I realized how wavy it is throughout. But it is finally done. To be honest, I actually like it flaws and all. I can just picture taking my granddaughter to the park and spreading this out for a picnic. This quilt was before I had ever heard of scant 1/4 seam and all the pieces were cut with a scissors,not a rotary cutter.

    it turned out beautifully! great that you pulled it out and decided to finish it-
    you know---the (little things) that you think are wrong---are really seldom apparent to anyone else- no one knows you did not mean for something to be exactly like it is- so don't beat yourself up- it is a beautiful quilt and a very good job done!

    It's very cute. I like the pattern and the colors. Good for you for finishing it. Do you remember the name of the pattern?

    Nothing like picking a super hard pattern for a first quilt. And scissors cut. It turned out beautifully. We learn from every quilt even after the first 100. I'm so glad you finished.

    I don't know if I would put that one on the ground or not. It is too pretty.
