    First quilt

    I think you did a wonderful job, just making your first quilt show how strong you are. I hear a lot of people say they could never make a quilt. I tell them any one can do it if they find out how, it just takes one step at a time. I hope you give quilting another chance, you will only get better with practice. Keep up the good work.

    i love the colors you used and how you placed them. It is beautiful!
    from here I don't see the errors that you see because YOU know where they are and I am not even trying to find them. All I see is beauty Bravo!
    congratulations for even starting to learn how to quilt. Now you will want to try again with another pattern and you will soon improve with each project

    First of all, the joy of a rag quilt is that the seams do not need to match up. Get most of your mistakes out of the way on the first quilt and do better on the next. It is also hard to line up seams on a rag quilt because you can't nestle the seams together. Love your quilt.

    Great job! And that's the great thing about a rag quilt, you don't have to worry so much about the seams not matching.

    Congrats! Your quilt looks GREAT! I've never dared do a rag quilt. They look hard and tedious to me. All that cutting! Maybe I'm weird(or lazy) my sister and daughters love them. And yours is fabulous!

    Of course he will love it, it was made for just him by his Mom!! My Mom made quilts for all my kids and to this day my oldest son still has his but does not use it as it is almost 40 years old. He wants to keep what is left of it!!

    The seams aren't suppose to match up on this type of quilt.... that's why it's a "rag quilt".... the fraying camoflages the seams and makes it "fun and sassy"..
    Yes your 3 yr old will love it.
    Good JOB!
