    Finally made it!

    I finally got my act together and stopped procrastinating. I have finished my quilt for charity. This is only quilt #2 for me. Thanks to jc469273 for the long arm quilting, advice and patience for dealing with a newbie. The binding is what I was dreading, but I won't get better by not doing it so I dove in. Viewing everone else's creations are an inspiration for me to keep trying. It's not going to win prizes at a quilt show. But that's not what this is for. It's for keeping warm. (I hope this picture posts)

    What a great creation - your skills belie the fact that you consider yourself a newbie - congratulations on a job well done!!!

    I love it. Is it the strip twist pattern? I love those and want to do one myself someday.

    It's beautiful. I would give it a Blue Ribbon. I am sure the lucky person who receives it for your chosen charity will think so as well. Great job.

    Looks great. Congratulations on finishing. That's the hard part for me. I like to start a lot of things just to see how they are put together, then I don't finish them.

    Very nice. Binding can be intimidating, but it gets easier with practice.

    I love it! Great work. I might borrow the pattern for my nieces quilt.

    Binding - not my favorite thing to do, either, so I machine bind. If I didn't, none of the quilts I make would ever be officially done.
