    I know that many of you are probably well seasoned in the field of quilting, but I have just started. I have taken no lessons, only read books and tried to re-create things I've seen (in my own style).
    So..without further delay...here are my first two finished projects.
    The deer set is ready to give to my son for his wedding gift.
    I quilted in the black lines of the 4 placemats and did a straight line quilt on all the other items: double oven mitt, fingertip oven mit, 2 pot holders (one not shown).
    The cola bag is for a quick carrying around of my laptop. I took several ideas and popped them into one case. Not bad for a beginner (in my humble opinion). This was the VERY FIRST quilting project I ever did.

    Why aren't my pictures showing...I used the Attach Files, they are .jpg and they are less than 300K

    The laptop bag WAS my very first quilting project, yes.
    Then my husband suggested placemats for our sons wedding.
    I tried a few samplers (pot holder) and found it to be easy...So i created a template for the size mats I wanted and kept on going from there

    These are just great and since you indicate that the placemats and the matching pot holders and oven mits are for you son's wedding, does this mean the kids are growing up and now you might have time for some quilting projects???
