    This was my first attempt at FMQ in 2010 on my small Kenmore machine. I've learned alot since then. I really liked the colors of the quilt but the piecing was alot less than perfect. Many, many mistakes. But I guess that's part of learning.

    Awesome. Looks good to me. I have problems working with small pieces. Wasted a lot of fabric. My squares never line up.

    I think it looks great. It will keep someone warm and the mistakes won't hinder at all. ( I can't see any!) Sure hope I can get my FMQ to that point someday! Beautiful. I like that pattern. Is it something to do with Irish Chain?

    You did a good job. Nothing to be ashamed of. You may see more mistakes than we do but we all make them. Continue the good work and just have fun doing it.

    Congrats. We learn a little at a time and you are well on your way. Remember people look at things as a whole not looking at each intersection to see if it matches. So look at your quilt as a whole and you you will see how gorgeous it looks. Forget the errors, done is best
