    This is my first block ever. About 10 rip outs and redo's and it is about as good as it is going to get.

    Quilting is Practice - so practice, practice, practice.

    That looks great! I stayed away from stars due to the points for a long time! (What am I saying? I still stay away from them when at all possible! :) )

    glad to see that your were willing to rip and redo to get better quality, before long that will be fewer and farther between :wink:

    Awesome 1st block. Yesterday I got out a block of the month project that I started about 8 years ago and never finished. Well to make a long story short, my 1/4 inch seams were not as good then as they are now. I am having quite the challenge with the setting blocks and making the quilt blocks match. I will post it when I am done. Anyway, if this is your first block...you will be a fabulous quilter!
