    Since it was my first quilt, I went the easy way and did stitch in the ditch.

    It actually is the center of the Greek Cross block, but I thought it was so plain that I did an embroidery
    design in the center, it is an outline type design of Christmas Bells with ribbons...my picture does't show it to well. Any of the applique I did by machine, but did do the hidden stich on the back for the binding.

    I just did a stitch in the ditch for the quilting, didn't want to get too confident...need to become more sure of myself with future quilts. I do have to say, the Craftsy BOM was great, the directions were really easy to follow. This is the first one completed, still have another one that needs assembled for another
    dgd. Hope to have it done by Christmas...same as this one.

    That is great. I am behind several months on mine and I'm using Christmas fabric so I will have to finish it next year when I have more time.

    First quilt? I'd be happy if that was my 90th quilt! Congratulations, you did a spectacular job.

    My blocks are still sitting in their bin!! You did a great job and I especially like what you did with the English Paper Piecing - thought her sun was a bit lame! And finishing a second one as well!!!

    What a wonderful quilt! I wish now I had stuck with the Craftsy BOMs (sigh)...

    Beautiful quilt. I love the idea of Christmas material. I have so much I may have to make one. You are doing great.

    The quilt looks great. I did a sampler quilt for my first quilt as well. I know I learned a lot from it as I'm sure you have as well. It is a great quilt and your dgd will love it.

    It's fabulous and just in time for Christmas. The young family will most certainly enjoy it.

    Kathy T, it is not too late, they will be on the website for a long time,
    so just go in and print them off and watch if you need to.

    PamelaF, don't feel intimidated, you can do it. If you need guidance, go to Craftsy.com and print off the patterns with directions, and watch the demo for any you have questions on. They said the Class will be left on for future use. Believe me, if I can do it, you can. I had not been on a sewing machine for YEARS.
