    I made a single little block last night to try my hand with machine quilting. I finished the block and put binding on it. I just close one eye, don't look closely, and call it good. Now I will probably tuck it away somewhere out of sight! : :?

    I think I like machine quilting - only problem is I forget that I am supposed to move the quilt around. Well, you talked me into it. I'll see if I can get a "good" pic.

    Great job. Hang it on the wall so it will be handy to compare your improvement as time goes by!

    You should be proud of it. Put it out there and show it off.

    I love your block and the colour combination is perfect for it. What is the block called. Thank you for sharing and keep up the good work.

    If it found its way to my house it would be hanging on my wall right now.
    I like it that much.

    Great job on the quilting. And, the block is gorgeous. I agree, hang it on the wall with pride. The thing about FM quilting, tho, is that it's addicting (at least for me)!!

    I'd look for a piece of blue ribbon and pin it on that block. "Best First Try by Me" category!!

    That is beautiful!!! You should be extremely proud. Show it off proudly. The best way to learn is by doing. And you can only improve with practice.
