    It took me 2 1/2 years - but I finally finished the quilt that brought me to this board.

    I had purchased Joann Fabric's Sunny Days Block of the Month Quilt Kits - on clearance.

    So, I dutifully followed the directions and made the individula blocks. I even found the setting kit on clearance. I started the assmbly process and found from this board that one is supposed to square up blocks to a uniform size prior to assembly.

    So some blocks do not fit correctly together. I made mistakes on the assembly of the blocks.

    I worked this past year through the wonderful Doll Quilt Swap on learning how to bind the quilt.

    Well, I finally finished the quilt - quilting and bound. It is done and it is mine!!!

    It may come in last place if I ever submitted it to a quilt show, but as my grandmother used to say, even an ugly baby is loved by its mother. And I love my very first queen size quilt.

    Thanks -

    My husband said it was good, so he did not notice the mistakes. I am my own harsh critic

    Even an ugly baby is loved by its mother OMG That cracked me up so much! I'm STILL laughing!!!

    And I think your quilt is very pretty! We are our own worst critics. I've learned to lay my quilt on the couch and go look at it from the other side of the room...THEN I see what everyone else sees. ;)

    You should be very proud. I do love these colors and the design. I keep promising myself a quilt, not yet there. I also found a great deal on blue and yellow quilt, but haven't started yet. Yours is stunning!

    WOW! That's beautiful! I don't see any mistakes at all. However, I find zillions on my own quilts! I think we are all our own worst critics.

    Hey, it looks fine. I don't see any lost star points. Not everyone can say that..even the most experienced! It is a very pretty quilt and you should be proud! Only 2 year too. I have some UFO's that have been in the making for probably 10-15 years!!! One day I will get them all done, maybe!
