    the first and third are pitiful!!! best you send them to ME! i Will hide them for you. jk jk great job.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    You're doing great! They're all really really pretty tops. Nothing to be merciful about...you do good work. Be sure to post pictures when you finish quilting them.

    Wow! These are teriffic. I love your sence of color. The fabrics in the second quilt are sumptuous.
    Now, in the last quilt, the yellow block? Not sure there is enough yellow in the rest of the pattern to carry it off. I like it but needs to have either more yellow background or lose that block and add a narrow yellow border! Just take a second look at it. This is only an opinion and not meant to be a quilting police. Try rearranging the blocks as another idea.

    I do like this top alot.

    ube, those were just the blocks layed out, i didnt end up using that yellow one either, just an odd duck, did also rearrange and add a batik green border between and around. so yall werent able to see the flaws? id like to be able to sell these when their done, as the maker ofcourse i can find all the flaws and thats all i can look at. that blue one, the one that had an extra piece ot it on the bottom , lol, did sell it tacked, is there a trick to getting every block to line up perfectly? sheesh ive been makeing every block as perfect as possible, sew my 1/4in seam as clean and still i have to back up once i get the strips together and redo the blocks so they line up right as im putting the quilt together, never mind getting the points perfect on those claws. do quilts that yall make and sell have all that perfect or is it just not knoticable once its quilted? the small green one is a quilt as you go, i finished the blocks before putting them together, there is a small seam on the back and freehand quilted on my machine, this will eventually be a big quilt, love the freehand quilting but cant do a big quilt on my machine, looking for a quilting machine setup. any suggestions. thank yall for all the compliments

    Merciful? Heavens woman you are doing a great job! I like them all but I think my fave is the last one best, hard to choose. Keep up the good work, I wouldn't know that you were 'just learning'

    I've been quilting about 45 years and I am still learning. I hope you will experience the same thing. They all look great to me.
