Here is my first quilt, I just finished it today. Let me know what you think.

I know that there is mistakes. My biggest problem was the binding. It looks horrible to me. I may take it off and try again.

Thanks for looking.

Very pretty. I think I would leave the binding alone, and learn from it. It dosen't look that bad.

Well Done!! I love the decorative stitching too! I wouldn't change the binding despite any "flaws"-I love the idea of the "first quilt" staying as is-then years from now and many quilts later, you will cherish that first one, flaws and all, as the start of this wonderful hobby! You should see how bad mine was!! (I actually posted a pic of it a while back!!)

Cute. You may want to wash the quilt first and see what happens to the binding before you try to redo it.

I had the same thing happen to one of mine and the ripple almost disappeared after washing (enough to where I didn't care about it any more!) No QUILT POLICE to say bad or good!

Nice colors and effect of your pattern. Time to try another one!
