    I can see why your husband wants to keep it. It is beautiful. The fact that it is reversible is wonderful.

    Beautiful work! I agree. Keep it. Also take pictures or keep a journal of every quilt you make.
    Retired teacher, loving it.
    Love quilting also.

    That Irish Chain is gorgeous! You did some job making points meet. Very Impressive and I love the colors. Don't give it away. It's a very generous thought, but it's your first quilt. You should keep it. Make another to give.

    It is a lovely quilt, both the front and the back. It is absolutely gorgeous. I would be loath to give it away. I find it difficult to give away anything especially if it is a quilt! There is nothing boring in either the front or the back of the quilt! I would agree with PaperPrincess about the LA. If I may just say that the back of the quilt is too pretty to have it spoilt in anyway. Then again, it is entirely your call and I hope that when it's done we can all have a look? For someone new to quilting, you certainly do have the gift of making lovely quilts. Look forward to your next quilt! Thank you for sharing. Best wishes.

    Your quilt will be beautiful when quilted. It will be reversible, I love the back as much as the top!

    That is a stunning quilt! Your piecing shows your attention to detail. I agree with Girlfriend that you should keep your first one. It's such a wonderful accomplishment. And remember, it's not a race. Do things the way you want to do them and at your own pace. Love then backing fabric!

    Oh my! Are you sure you haven't been quilting for a lot longer? Sure looks like it. Corners matched up well. Colors choices great. Very nice work. Will be waiting to see your first effort at quilting too. Bet it's even better. Oh, and welcome to the board. Think you'll love it here.
