    My First Quilt

    I posted a couple of days ago that I was a quilting addict but I was afraid to actually quilt because I didn't think I could make a "perfect" quilt. I was giving a lot of encouragement from you ladies and was told to go for it. This is a picture of a quilt I made months ago at a quilting class. It is far from perfect and I think that is what caused my hangup. It has lots of mistakes so please be gentle. ;-)

    It is beautiful!!! Remember, it's ok to not be perfect in every way. Mary Poppins was nearly perfect :-)

    Great job.
    When you sleep under a quilt, you sleep under a blanket of love.

    Not sure were you're mistakes are, it looks lovely to me. I have been quilting for years. I still make mistakes...I mean my little signatures, that marks the quilt as created by me. lol

    None of your "imperfections" show in this picture. It is beautiful. Keep going, each project will be better than the last.
