    I made my first quilt @ 25 years ago. I finally began quilting again this summer, and just finished my first quilt. I made this quilt to be donated to www.QuiltsForKids.org and will be sending it in shortly.

    It is machine pieced and quilted. I picked the fabric myself (rather than ask the charity to send me the fabric).

    There are many minor mistakes, but I don't think a typical child will notice it or care.

    I didn't see any mistakes, so no child will. I love it.

    This will provide many happy memories in times that are troubling for some child. You have done a wonderful quilt for a wonderful purpose.

    very pretty, it will definately be loved & i think i'm a typical adult & don't see the problems ;) it's perfect for a boy too and sometimes i think they get left out of more manly quilts as we often like the pretty, bright, cutesy stuff.

    Fantastic straight line quilting. Curves are easy. Straight lines and echoed straight lines are difficult. You mastered the technique. Well done.

    I purposely looked for colors/patterns that might appear to a boy in his early teens. It was much harder to pick that out than for a young boy or girl of any age.
