    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!

    Very nice job! I'd leave the binding - it really doesn't look that bad - and the first quilt is very special :) You did a very nice job with your piecing as well. Thx for sharing!

    Very nice for a first quilt...really great colors...as for the binding...as it is your first quilt, I would probably just leave it, and learn more as you do your next one.

    People will be so busy looking at the wonderful colors to notice a binding. I gave a beginning quilt to a friend. It was aweful. She has saved it so her son can use it for his son. She sees no flaws only beauty

    Ah ha! The world of quilting has snagged another one!

    Very good job on your first one! I agree -- wash it and see what happens, then decide. Only work again on the binding if it still bothers you in a month....time heals many troubles.

    You did an awesome job on your first quilt, you should be very proud of it. Love your color choices. I would leave the binding on this quilt the way it is. I hope you will share your new quilt when you are finished.
