    I have been Machine quilting for a few years and recently (about 4 Months) ago decided to try my hand at my own start to finish quilts. Hope you like. the 1st is my attempt at a Celtic style. The Second is a smaller quilt I made for my wife for Christmas.

    Smitty you are really doing a beautiful job with your quilts. Nice work! I have to confess, I just love that star quilt. I am working on one myself this week.

    I am really taken back by so many replies. I am also surprised by the amount men that I have met at some of the shows that have gotten into quilting. My wife and site inlaws say I get my talents from my Carpentry skills, Machine and trades experience but I like to think I'm just a newbee at this as I see soooo many real peices of work that are serious work. Thanks this is a driver for me to keep going.

    The name of your quilt drew me in and the colours and pattern have captured me.

    Wonderful.
