    Oh, they're BEAUTIFUL! I love the yellow and green the best, but it sure is hard to choose. They're both lovely. Nice work for a beginner! Make more!

    Thank you so much for the kind remarks,,,,No, I don't have sewing experience....The stitches are awfull.....They were done on a small Brother XR machine....so they are not even....I didn't even know how to make two igual triangles.....Now I want a machine with more space....I am working ona whole cloth quilt now...completelly crazy...Seems I can't follow one pattern......Must mess up with them....Its a real problem.....no discipline at all........
    Thanks again and hapy happy holidays

    ania, you are so modest! They look real good! About the stitching - that's what your quilting family is for - to not notice them! Seriously, they are really nice!

    looks like you are off to a great start. i am especially interested in the quilting on the yellow. did you quilt it yourself? i saw a pic in a catalogue of a very pricey quilt that was quilted very much like yours. i am so tempted to try it myself.
    keep up the good work, and keep the pictures coming. we love to share :wink:

    I can'ty believe it....Where?????? Since this was my first quilt ever...I just took pieces of fabric..cut them (not so even)..he he....and sew them together..like my own design (or luck of one).....When I run out of fabric, I started to rip and rearranged the pieces......Its so horribrl that in certain places the stitches are just not sewn ..there are bolks all over....really bad...
    By the time I finished piecing the top....I learnt I should put something in between...I could get only a cheap polyester......and then sew a big zigzag with the walking foot ...came out uneven and ugly....But I had my first quilt done........Even the fabric are combination of different kind of fabric (not uniform...)
    Thanks for the complements..... :lol:
    I bought today the brother PQ1500 machine.....and I really hope to quilt nicer quilts in the future (better done)......

    I really like your quilts...especially the blue and white one. I also like the way you quilted them. Good job. Your work shows great creativity and that goes a long way in becoming a good quilter. Thanks for sharing.

    ania, it is the giant zig zag down the surface of the quilt that caught my attention. i think the one i saw used a wavey stitch but it looked very much like yours. see how creative you are. they wanted a pretty penny for theirs so keep up the good work, you never know. :wink:
