    OK FOLKS...here it is, my very first quilt. Please tell me what you think, honestly!!! I need to know what needs improvment. But be gentle, my soul is fragile!! lol
    I made it for my sister and she didn't seem overly thrilled with it. Or maybe I was just too excited and expected too much. But regardless I'm just happy that I DID IT!!!! I'm the one that the sewing machine would run out of the room when I walked in.

    That is just beautiful. No need to be gentle with you. You are a natural. Great job. Keep up the good work.

    DesertNurse41 I like your quilt. I'm sorry it didn't get the response you expected. Some people don't appreciate handmade items. I didn't understand all the work that goes into each quilt until I completed my first one. I hope to see more quilts from you in the future. Until then Happy Quilting.

    Your quilt is beautiful, and I'm amazed it's your first! Good job! I agree with the others that some people just don't know (and therefore can't appreciate) how much work goes into a quilt. But we do, and you did good!!! Congratulations!

    It looks great, i love it. I would be thrilled to have received it as a gift. sometimes NOn quilters just do not have the enthusiasm that we quilters have. They do not understand the work and love that goes into a quilt.

    Lovely, those who don't quilt sometimes just don't understand the love and care goes into these projects, but that doesn't make them any less special.

    It is very pretty! And like the others said some people just don't know what goes into a quilt. My husbands grandmother gave us one for our wedding. He kind of looked at it funny. I thought it was the best present we received.

    I would never make my mom one - it is just not her thing. :)

    I think you did a very good job.
    I like the design, the stitching is nice, the borders are good, the colors are excellent, it looks like it is in perfect square.
    I would be happy and proud to have been the person you gave the quilt to. I don't think you can ask for more from yourself. If you had not told me it was your 1st heirloom I would not have known.
    My thought is: those who do not have a passion for quilting also seem to have less appreciation for the quilts themselves. I wish so much I had kept the first quilt I made. I can't even remember it now. Would be fun to look back.
    You did a good job and I like the quilt.

    I think you did a great job! I have to agree with a couple of the other ladies that have responded - if you would consider new sisters I would be happy to volunteer!!! :-D

    Did your sewing machine run off with mine? :) There must be a machine resort somewhere around here!!

    Oh yeah, your sister is nuts (no offense). Your quilt is beautiful!!
