    So, I posted a while back about this quilt and got lots of encouragement! I have had lots of trouble with this quilt, I think a lot was inexperience. I had to cut lots, rip lots of seams, tried fmq, I so need lots of practice before I ever try a quilt this size again, so that meant lots more seam ripping, but I turn out beautiful. I found some left over scraps after I bought some material for the border so I said, this is a sign, I have to make it bigger. And I did. It went for a king to a full to a small king large queen. Tonight I will be tucked under this quilt and it will stay for a very long time! I am so happy, this is my first.quilt, not my first completed, but the first quilt I ever started... and now it is done done done... :-D

    my dirty little girl, she had a dirt fight with her cousins, lmbo

    Gorgeous quilt....well done for getting it finished. Your little one looks like a real sweetie. Nothing like sleeping under a freshly made quilt...very satisfying.

    Your quilt is so pretty. It always feels so good when we get them finished. By the way, I have been sewing for 53 years and quilting for nine years. I know I have used the seam ripper more during my years of quilting than through all the years of sewing clothes, draperies, etc. You have a precious little girl!
