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

Owen's quilt

Alahna's quilt

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.

Thank you all for such kind words! I have tears of joy. I didn't think I would be able to accomplish it!
