    This is a baby quilt I did recently for my great nephew. Had to quilt it myself. I hand quilted the little pictures with embroidery floss and did meandering around them if thats what you call it . I outline quilted around the frogs and did a wavy X through the block.

    For first time quilting I was satisfied with how it came out.

    Mary! I've decided you must be a quilt hustler. (or should that be quilt shark?) either way ... beginner? i think not! can't be. everything you show us is soooo nice.

    if you're this good as a beginner, i "hate" to think what your work will be like in a couple of years. LOL
    :P

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the compliments. And Patrice, I just keep trying until I get it somewhat right. Just for laughs here is one of my first attempts.

    Well Patrice, for one thing this was a quilt as u go thing and when I stitched it together the blocks did not line up. That is 4 blocks. I sewed them all in the wrong direction. I cannot tell you how many times I ripped the thing out. Finally I said thats it it stays as it is.

    Well I can see some progress in my sewing, can't you. lol
