    #1 It's a beautiful quilt
    #2 Are your parents Certified Quilt Police?
    If the answer to #2 is "No" then I bet they will be thrilled that you made them a quilt and won't see a thing wrong with it.
    You may be the forerunner in a new quilting style!!

    Just keep at it. When it's finished, you will see it in a better light.

    It looks wonderful. Don't give up. Once it's all finished it will look different to you. It's going to be beautiful. Why are we so hard on ourselves? But, I understand, because I'm the same way! :)

    It looks great to me!

    I wish I could machine quilt like that. I slowly hand quilt mine. I average one a year.

    Thanks for everyone's kind words. Your words of encouragement were just what I needed. I really like doing the FMQ...I just need a bigger work space. 5 1/2" makes it hard work...ha. I can hear that sit down Handi Quilter (Sweet Sixteen) calling my name. Just don't have the money, but someday.....

    It looks great. Take a break. My first free motion I sewed thru my finger. The quilt had my blood sweat and tears in it. I always tell my kids the quilt is made with love not perfection and that it represents my arms around them when I am not there. I told that to my parents also when I made them quilts. So dont worry about it. They will love it, we are our worst critics and see little imperfections. They won't. Get a good night sleep and continue on with the love.
