    I found two more that are completed, plus a tree skirt my daughter just finished yesterday for her friend's wedding gift. Thank you to all of you for your nice comments.

    Not a beginner any longer! Nice work! Especially like the blue one and the center blocks of the pink one!

    I live near Peoria. I've been through Effingham. Used to stop at a barbecue place near the interstate. It's been a long time.

    I think you can change your status to "confident beginner"
    Nice job!

    Oh your quilts are fun. I think we never give ourselves enough credit for what we do. They look gorgeous. I know we all can improve and most of us think of ourselves as beginners. You sure are accomplished from the look of these quilts. I think learning something from each quilt is what keeps me quilting. Even though I can't claim beginner status anymore, I still learn from each quilt whether it is a technique or something about color. I wish for you the same thing.

    They are all very nice. I have a tree skirt with the 9 ruler in my future. Your daughter's reminded me to get started or the tree will be getting the same old felt tree skirt again this Christmas.

    Be careful, you'll get hooked. I did eight tree skirts last season. They are a lot of fun with so many possibilities in the fabrics!

    All of them are wonderful! What is your definition of a beginner? :)

    Pretty good job for a beginner. I think you have progressed past that stage after the first quilt.

    I''m back looking at your things again. You notice different things when you get a second view such as the pattern the blue blocks make in the middle quilt.
