    Constructive feedback is welcome. I am so excited to have this new hobby. The baby quilt tops were quilted by a friend on her machine. I used sitich in the ditch for my Hunter Star quilt.

    Even though green is not really one of my favorite colors, I really, really love the Hunter's Star. Are you sure you've only been quilting 3 months?

    Looks like you wasted a lot of time. You should have been quilting long ago.

    Great job!

    Thanks for all the positive feedback. I had no idea and still am a little perplexed about color. I am reading and using my color wheel. The other issue is the closest place to find fabric was Walmart:-( and now they have done away with fabric. So now I buy whenever we travel. No quick run to the fabric store for me. Probably 40+ miles now.

    LOVE that Hunter's Star. I think you're kidding us about quilting for only 3 months!

    Sometimes in the beginning, we are ignorant of what is "difficult"...that's a good thing!! Look what can be created in three months when you just jump in!!
    Beautiful quilt!
