    Still learning how to use this forum so sorry if I've posted this twice! - not to mention learning how to quilt...
    Here are my first three blocks - Rail Fence, Card Trick and Wild Goose Chase.
    I'm really enjoying it and hoping I'll be abel to cover up the mistakes! but then I keep telling myself that quilting is not supposed to be about perfection!

    AWESOME JOB!! Soon you will have a "sampler" quilt! You did a great job--even your points look good on your geese.

    You are doing a good job. I am new too. I just took a beginnig quilting class . The instructor said not to worry if someone 3 feet away can't see a mistake. Sometimes, she deliberately puts a mistake in her quilts. :lol:

    Good looking blocks. I am a beginner also and have problems with points not matching and blocks too short on one side. I get so frustrated when I really take my time to cut and sew. I want to get that pattern for the card block. Anyone have it?

    Your blocks are just gorgeous! As you said, quilting is not about perfection IMHO. It should be a fun, learning experience and relazing. As they say "Done is better than perfect." Only God is perfect so enjoy sewing and learning. Thanks for sharing your beautiful blocks.
