    And get a running start as you check out what I've been working on! :lol:

    I finished this top last night.
    It's the first quilt that I cut out with my GO! I used the 1 1/2 in strip cutter and the 6 in square. I do love the accuquilt GO! It took me less than 30 minutes to cut out this quilt.
    I'm still a new quilter, and this is my first quilt with sashing. So don't look toooo closerly :)
    I was going to try to FMQ using my singer, but I think it may be too big. I'll have to give that some thought.
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for looking!

    That's a beautiful design. isn't it amazing how sometimes the simplest design can be so striking? I really like your choice of colors.

    FMQ can be a challenge, depending on the throat space of your machine, but it can be done even with a small machine. Just take your time. If you do some kind of design in each square and don't try to "travel" too much, I think you'll have good success.

    I'm sorry I don't have a horse but I didn't see anything wrong. I think you made a fabulous quilt.

    What a neat pattern!! I love it! It sure looks good to me!! As for quilting--I'd hand it to a long arm expert and avoid the frustration. :wink:

    I want to see your quilt inspector in full!!

    What a beautifully simple design. It's stunning to say the least. I didn't gallop by, I strolled and didn't see a thing wrong with it. Great job.

    Thanks to everyone for all the compliments!
    I was going to try to put the squares on point, but didn't have enough fabric..so this is what I ended up with.

    I guess I'm a bit of a non-conformist because I have only made one quilt from a pattern.

    I've have picked up a few new-to-me patterns and the fabric, but am intimidated by patterns.. but I'm sure I'll get over that.

    barnbum- I cant figure out how to post additional pics, pm me your address and I'll send pics of my quilt inspectors =)

    Beautiful! I love it!

    That will be a real challenge to quilt on a small machine! I wish you the best.

    Nice job! This is a great quilt.
    I'm sure your inspector found it to be perfect.
