    Here are the two quilts I just finished for my 11 y.o. twin grandkids, Owen & Alahna. These are my first two large quilts. I am just a novice and I am proud of these, mistakes and all! LOL

    They are both beautiful & you should be proud! Who cares about "mistakes" - it is the overall finished quilt that will matter to those 2 kids.

    They look really great to me!! Bet the grandkids won't notice if there are a few "artistic liberties" somewhere.

    Thank you all so much. I really love quilting. I used to be a cross stitcher when I lived in NJ. I got involved in quilting here in Maine because there are so many others doing it and loving it.
    There is an LQS in town with the lovliest lady/owner who has all kinds of wonderful ideas and can help in so many ways. She has been a big encouragement to me also.
    MAINLY THOUGH, I have learned so much from this board! It has been like going to a special quilting college! Also I now have quite a library of tutorials online and patterns because you people all share so wonderfully. KUDOS to you all!
