    Hello, I finally took pictures of my first quilt in progress. Remember I am new to sewing all together so it is not perfect...lol. The first one is for my dog because I know she won't notice any flaws. As a matter of fact she likes it already we covered her up with it last night to see her reaction and she went to sleep..lol.

    You did a great job. Your puppy seems to think so too! Keep up the good work. Looking forward to seeing your first "human" quilt.

    That is a great job, I love your quilt... You should have seen my first one. It was so bad didn't even finish it up with back and batting. Just have it folded away so that when I get blue or think I am not making progress, I can drag it out lol.

    Great job.

    I think you did a very nice job. Flaws if any are not noticable. The fabric you chose is adorable! And the puppy looks pretty pleased with her new quilt, too. Looks like she's smiling in her sleep...visions of puppy chews maybe?

    Toni, you did a very nice job. :thumbup:
    I love the fabric prints you picked, and your puppy looks like she's having a very nice nap under her very own quilt.

    Thanks to everyone on the comments and support. I am almost finished and I guess what scares me the most is the actual quilting together. Don't know a darn thing about borders or quilting...lol. Don't know if I can hand stitch either...lol. Just going to have to jump in and sink or swim I guess. I am trying to learn all of these terms and tricks but it still seems like a whole other language right now. Just don't want to get discouraged and stop. I think my machine will do the job seeing how it is more of a small blanket or lap quilt. ugh!!!!!!!!! I don't know maybe I will try tying it instead. The only thing is don't you have to have a stand or stretcher to make sure it is good and tight.

    I need to purchase a whole lot more tools.....lol :lol:

    Toni, Take a deep breath. I'm a new quilter too. Actually, I'm a piecer, because I dont' quilt much! I think your little doggy quilt would be just the right starter project for you to machine quilt. Stitch in the ditches (Google that if you're not familiar). Or PM me and I'll give you the layman's instructions! And first, buy some of that handy basting spray. It's perfect for us beginners and keeps everything in place. Or, they have fusible batting that will keep your quilt sandwich together. Then put your walking foot on the machine and go slow. You'll be so surprised how those blocks "pop" after you've quilted them. It's such a pretty little quilt. Your sweet dog will treasure it. After seeing how nicely you pieced it together, I can bet you'll be an awesome quilter! Make more!

    Oops...my cats saw the pic and now I'm in really "hot" water! You did a great job on your first quilt! I started to self teach in Jan. 06..so still a newbie (well I use it as an excuse anyway-LOL) You just try to learn at least 1 new thing with each project. I learned early on that I love it, its fun and best of all...there is NO SUCH THING AS "QUILT POLICE"...your quilt is great...have fun!
