    Love/Hate this quilt!!!!!!

    My love/hate relationship with this quilt is that I loved making it, but I did not like the fabric choices in the end. I was very hard to picture the design by block.... it was a lot of guess work. It is a Margret Miller Angle Play pattern of "DESERT STARS"

    Also this is my year of "SCRAP QUILTS" I am using up all my scraps.... the 2nd photo is a string quilt "Kolidescope". Working hard and learning as I go. I have only be doing the FMQ'ing for one year. All my work is done on a Janome MC9700. I can only Dream of getting a long arm one day. LOL ENJOY!

    It seems to me you are a fast learner. I see nothing wrong with your quilts. You did a great job quilting them. I still have not mastered quilting my own quilts. I send my bigger ones to LAQ. Keep up your good work!

    I have been at it for several years and then a few. If I could FMQ as good as you are doing, I would be in hog heaven. Great quilts and quilting.

    I like them too! Sometimes we are too hard on ourselves. I made a quilt once that after it was finished, I did not like the colors. But now that I have lived with it a while, it is growing on me. Give it time.

    Truly, there is just something that draws me to the 1st quilt. I really like it. The second one is along my usual colorway. Love a great scrappy!

    Both are beautiful! Wow, your FMQ is fantastic -- you should be very proud. Both are color combos that I would not have thought of -- good job.

    Very pretty quilts. I love the bright colors. I am in the market for a new machine and think I will stick with a Janome. The one I now have is a no frills machine, but is such a good one. Had it for over 10 years and have not had a single problem with it. I just want one with a larger throat so I can squeeze in those quilts a little easier. Do you love yours!

    I find that I am often tired of the fabrics in a quilt by the time I finish the quilt. That feeling will go away, you will eventually look at the quilt with fresh eyes and realize how beautiful it is. I am really taken by the string quilt. Those black sashings with the blue cornerstones give such a 3-d look to it. I think it's one of the prettiest string quilts I've seen.
