    Great colors. Sometimes I think simple patterns are more beautiful than complex ones given color choices. Congratulations on finishing your first of many!

    Congrats! I am trying to teach myself machine quilting on my own, I would say if you want to quilt yours yourself, practice on something else first!

    Lovely quilt! Lucky niece!!! You did a super job choosing colors and putting it together. The quilting bug is a wonderful bug to catch...just expensive

    Thanks for all of the sweet comments. I will try quilting the next one myself, but since school starts 2nd week of August, I am not putting that stress on myself. Too much going on right now to be worrying about it. I have some more practicing to do first. I will begin another one soon I hope, and I hope there are plenty more quilts for me to quilt in my future. Yes, I have been bitten by the bug ... one quilt pieced and already a closet full of fabric! Another expensive hobby, but the rewards are awesome.

    You did a great job - love the colors and the pattern.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    It's a terrific quilt! congratulations on your first. And yes, you can quilt it... straight lines will look fabulous on this pattern. Pull out the ol' walking foot and hop to... just think how proud you'll be when you complete the whole thing yourself.

    Congrats on your first quilt. Hopefully, it will become your passion. I would send this one out to be quilted. $50-$75 doesn't seem unreasonable and the stress of quilting it might be too much at this point. Start w/a small practice quilt to become comfortable with quilting. Talk w/the LAQ to see what her suggestions are. I try to pull ideas out of my fabrics. Looking at yours, I see flowers, and wavy lines. Maybe, something along those lines. A wavy meander w/flowers scattered thruout. A nice variegated thread in the colors of the quilt (I love variegated thread). Your quilt has all straight square lines. I would like to see some movement on the quilt. Whatever you chose will be great. It was a great start, keep quilting.

    You did a great job on this. I still have booboos in most of mine.

    Lovely quilt. I really like the colors. Speaking for me only, since it is twin size I would be tempted to stitch in the ditch and do it myself. Lovely.
