    Here is my first "real" quilt. For my sister for her wedding in Sept. Now I just have to figure out how to quilt it! And that's my little buddy, Chevy, in the picture. Never misses a photo op!

    Your quilt is great. Hard to believe it is your first!! This is a great example of what I consider "controlled scrappy". Really nice. Are you going to machine quilt, or hand?

    This was made from approx 80 FQs (excluding borders). A local shop had a sale so I stocked up quickly. My sister choose the colors but hasn't seen any of the quilt yet. I'm machine quilting, just not entirely sure how yet. And, no, I don't have a long arm. But I'm up for the punishment. :?

    Beautiful quilt, so nice and BIG. Love scrappy quilts. You did a really good job, the points look nice and sharp. The quilt inspector seems to like it too. Thanks for sharing.

    HOW FUNNY!!! I totally just found a huge mistake in this quilt! I'm still learning! I won't point it out but I'm sure you experienced ones will see it. My sister will never know. HA HA HA (there's almost tears with those Ha's)

    I canít find any mistakes! People always say there are mistakes, then I canít find them and I feel like I am searching for Whereís Waldo!! :) But I guess that is a good thing that I canít find it that means other people wonít be able to either. I think your quilt turned out awesome! Did you paper piece it? I love the colors.

    Cheers!

    Oh I like it! I'm in love with crossed canoes at the moment... and loving your color choices and layout.

    Ya know what? I used to look hard for those mistakes when someone said something like this, but now, I do a quick scan, and if I don't find it, as far as I'm concerned there is no mistake. And I don't see one here. You did a great job, and maybe you just THINK there's one because you're cross-eyed now that it's done. So uncross your eyes, wipe the tears, and be proud! Ya done good!

    oh that is lovely! And yes, which way are you going with the quilting? If it is by machine you may want to do something in an "all over the place" pattern.

    That is one beautiful quilt. I can't believe it is your first.
    If you can piece that well on your on your first, I wouldn't worry about quilting it. It will be fabulous.

    Wow - that is beautiful, and your first - wow, wow, wow! You'll never see my first one posted here ; ) I told my friends it was a 20 footer (looked okay at 20 ft. away).

    I am assuming that this is your first time quilting, since it is your first quilt. How about just doing a stitch in the ditch to make the canoes really pop out?
