    The hardest quilt I've done so far and it was my first, don't look to close for the applique is not that good, it was fun and frustrating. I havn't attempted an applique quilt again but I will, there are beautiful applique patterns out there. Comments are welcomed.

    Well now, let's see... Your Dresden Plates are beautiful, your fabric/color choices are gorgeous and well balanced, the border appliques are exquisite!! I guess you did ok for a beginner... step it up next time will ya? :lol:

    You have everything to be proud of, and no reason for shame!! If this is your first, you just raised the bar for the "experienced". Beautiful quilt & great work!!!

    Thank you so much. This was all scrap material except for the yellow background. My nieces pick out the scraps for me.

    Beautiful quilt and excellent for a first! I believe you are a natural quilter. Is the applique done on the machine or by hand? Barb C.

    I absolutely love the color combination. It looks like a very cheerful quilt, with a little bit of imp in it. I can imagine the quilt playing tricks on you, or hiding things.

    I personally can't believe that is your first quilt! It is lovely. Maybe you should keep those neices handy to pick fabric for you. LOL :lol:
