Your quilt is very cute! I have been watching Home machine quilting videos on U Tube for the last couple months, trying to get up the nerve to try it! Good for you for actually doing a quilt on your machine. I do love doll clothes making though, when my girls were little.

I now exactly what you are talking about. And that is exactly why I hand all larger than a 45 by 45 projects to a quilter.... ahhhhhh. Yes, it costs more, but for my sanity and to keep the joy of quilting--priceless.

I dont know. The quilting part is what I wanted to do. Thats what drew me to this site, and I think I will keep trying for awhile longer to see if I can do it myself. I hate for anything to get the best of me... if someone else can do it, why cant I? If I have to let someone quilt it then I do all the baking and they get to put on the frosting and I just dont like that idea...

It looks great. Sometimes you have to walk away and start back on it later. Do it in little sections. You are doing a great job!

Hang in there my quilting friend. It IS hard to manage a quilt and try to stitch with a regular machine. This is my unfavorite part of quilting. I save my $ to get anything larger than a wall hanging quilted by a longarm quilter. Saves on a ton of fustration!

Reward yourself next by doing a much smaller project that is easy to handle!!

Yes! Yes! I so agree! And HATE SID!!!!! I never do it! I'd much rather do patterns or swirls or anything than SID!
Hang in there! It gets easier!

You're just the kind of person I want for a neighbor.... someone who would gleefully take my tops and finish them!! :wink: I'd even be happy to bind the suckers, but the layering and quilting--Bleck!
