    1st large quilt (queen) project completed

    Name:  quilt 001 - Copy.JPG
Views: 1623
Size:  130.3 KBI saw this pattern in a book and it was referred to as"Trip to California". I just did it on my own since no instructionswere given. While the quilt is not perfect by any means, I am mighty pleasedwith it. I have been quilting since last fall and have been strictlyself-taught. I am going to try hand quilting it. So I am setting myself up fora long-term project. Thanks for looking.

    You did a great job with the four patch and the half square triangles.

    I think it looks great! You did a wonderful job piecing. I am certain the quilting will go just as well.

    I like it, I think you did a fantastic job on it. I admire you for the hand quilting, I don't have the patience to do that anymore.

    I agree, simple can be breath taking if you choose the right colors. You should be proud. It is beautiful.
