    You all have no idea how grateful I am for your encouragement. It means a lot to me. I just got into this 4 months ago and everything is new to me.

    I have now finished 8 small projects, this was the largest. I made quilted mats for my grandchildren to take to the local pool. Will give them as gifts when I arrive in July in the states. (Lancaster, Pa)

    Am working on the final one for them now which will be blue and white pinwheel squares alternated with red and white striped squares. Have no idea how it will look when finished. I'll post a pic then.

    Love and hugs

    I love your pattern that is really nice, wish the true colors showed up, but this is nice and it sure doesn't look like it was really easy. It will surely touch her heart.

    Its beautiful and for a first time you made a super job of it. No mean feat to put together a quilt like that. Take a bow.

    I love your quilt! I like to use strips in my miniatures. It is one of my favorite things to do! So I love the way you chose to put yours together! I am sure your friend's daughter will love it!

    You did a good job on it! I can always point out my mistakes but you have to stand back and realize most people won't notice them!
    I even sold a hotpad one time that one triangle was backwards in a way that totally stood out but someone bought it anyway! I guess maybe they thought I did it on purpose! LOL By the time I saw my mistake it was too late to fix it! So even the pros have flubs and goofs!! I know I do all the time!! and I have been quilting for 30 years!

    I think the goofs are what give it character! If they were perfect every time it would be boring!! Nothing to remember fondly! At least that is how I see mine!

    This quilt is darling! We quilters are most critical of our own work- and no one else even notices our flubs. I know she will love it.

    This is a very nice gift for you to give her- very kind of you! (I would have wanted to keep it! LOL)
