    Smile Beginner first quilt

    I started quilt (Craftsy BOM) in March, finally got it finished just in time to give to my dgd for their first Christmas with their two newly adopted children. I am proud of the finished quilt even tho I have a number of mistakes in it. I certainly hope I have learned from some of them. Name:  001.JPG

    Very, very nice. Did you quilt it yourself as well? If so, what method did you use? I've pieced a bunch of tops but have yet to actually quilt one. My bad!

    What an ambitious quilt for a first-timer! It looks wonderful! Your fabric choices are great. I especially like the the last block in the third row down. Is that circle inset or applique? Whichever it is, it's terrific!

    Beautiful colors, no one will ever notice any mistakes. So, don't point them out. They will love it.

    I don't see mistakes, I just see beauty. Congrats on the quilt. I am seeing so many techniques even curved piecing. The next will be easier and the next even easier.
