    Send your story to all the quilting magazines with a picture of the quilt. You did a great job. I like it. I love applique and you did a great job with the applique.

    Wonderful story. Hope you write many more and can get them published. Your challenge turned out very pretty. And the stripes do fit in very well.

    Love your story and your quilt. The challenge idea sounds like something I will suggest for our group. Thank you for sharing this with us.

    I love your story...Please send it to a quilt magazine so others can read and feel better. I also belong to a few groups. Most of the members have been quilting or sewing for many years. They are all very proud of what they do and rightly so. I have been trying to do this for the last 4 years. I did one quilt with step by step help from a friend. I do not take part in any round robins, challenges etc. I watch what the others do, and know that I do not have the brain skills or the sewing skills to do anything even near what they do. I do not want to make a fool of myself. Thanks for sharing your story and by the way the quilt is beautiful.

    I think you definetly have a gift, both for writing and quilting! Loved your story and your finished quilt is beautiful! And i second that idea that you should submit your story to the quilt magazines as it was nice to read. You do have a nice way of describing thoughts that i am sure we all tend to have, the frustrations of learning something new, etc.

    Someone told me that the people here were very generous with their remarks, and I find that more than I imagined. Thank you so much to all of you for the compliments on both the quilt and my writing. It means more than you know. I have not shared either, so this was an effort. And to answer the question someone asked, the flowered fabric was the original piece we were given to start with that we had to match.

    Oh, how wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing your trials and tribulations over the quilt you made. I think you did a fabulous job. The stripes look like you planned their placement from the beginning.

    Send your story to a magazine. It should be published, if for no other reason than to remind all of us that it is a huge challenge for a 'newbie' to step out and start. We ALL need to be ready to take a quilter-wanna-be by the hand to help her start.

    Quilting is about the enjoyment, not the feelings of inadequacy. Please don't feel that you should be at the level of those who have been quilting for ages. It takes ages to perfect all those skills. Those you make quilts for will be thrilled at the gift of yourself that you have given them.

    For your first project, you were braver than I would have been. I wouldn't have tried to applique for my premiere project! Your piece is beautiful and I loved your narritive. Good job on both :thumbup:

    Ah what a great story and the quilt came out beautiful. The stripe is the highlighted feature of the quilt. Great job.

    Really enjoyed your story-it belongs in quilting magazines so many more people have the opportunity to read and enjoy it! And seeing the "subject" quilt was a surprise! I didn't expect such a beauty! Well done-on the quilt and the story!
