    1st Quilt Top Complete

    First completed quilt top. Had such great fun making this for my almost 4 yr old grand daughter. I am sure the quilting police could find things done wrong or not quite right. I am not too concerned about them though. I am quite pleased with it. I learned many things while making it plus used many things I have learned while reading this post for the last year. I am so ready to start another one now!

    Quilt police are obsolete!! You learn as you go and yours is just lovely. Your gd will love it.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Congratulations. Looking forward to seeing what your next project is.

    BTW love the fabric choice. Hubby is a real fan of all things hawaiian and that would go down very well in this house.

    I love your fabrics!! And I am not sure what any "quilt police" would find wrong with it?! Your points in your 4-patches match perfectly! YEA for completing your 1st quilt top and doing such an awesome job!!

    Thanks for all the comments! You are all so great. I have learned so much over all the months I have been checking in on this board
    I am still basking in the afterglow of finishing that first top but can't wait to get started on another.

    This is lovely. Know that your DGD will love it. She will look at it through the eyes of love and enjoy it. My DGS thinks that I am an "Awesome" quilter (something I hope to be some day). They don't see the things we see. They just see something special for them made by someone they love. Keep them coming. BrendaK
