    I just finished my first quilt. It's a rag quilt made out of dinosaur fabric for my nephew. (The colors are truest in the 3rd and 4th photos.) It has some mistakes--the most distressing for me is when I accidentally clipped a block 5 times in a row while ragging it. I carefully appliqued a patch matching the fabric pattern on one side and used the label to cover it on the other. (Lesson learned: don't rag the seam allowances late at night when tired...) It passes the galloping horse test and I'm happy with my results. I consulted the board here more times than I can count while making it and I owe thanks to all of you for sharing your knowledge so generously!

    If my son received this when he was little, he would have been over the moon. He just loved dinosaurs.
    I do miss those days.
