    Please give me a push to finish this one!

    I have really gotten in over my head on this project. Only bought my first sewing machine in November and then foolishly charged right into something that I had no idea would be this difficult! The quilt police I hear you all speak of would have a field day with my points and seams. But... I only have three more star things to go and then some easy borders. This will be my first experience with hand quilting too. Despite some pretty glaring flaws it is kind of pretty My seven year old will love it anyway Thanks for looking, I am learning a lot from this board!


    Sorry meant to say "Please" in the title. When I am tired apparently I make up my own language. Argh! and I can not figure out how to edit the title.

    I don't see a thing wrong with it. You're too hard on yourself. This will be a gorgeous quilt. Is that encouragement enough?

    I think I love you! My husband totally does.not.get.it. But then you probably won't find me out on the riding mover with a cigar in my mouth and my top off either. (his hobby)

    Looks lovely to me. You sure picked a difficult looking one, but it looks great! Keep going.. just like anything else, it gets better with practice.
