    Beautiful quilt, especially for your very first one. Can't wait to see number 10.

    Great job! I like the colors and pattern. I like the binding with the sneak peak to what's on the back.

    Wonderful result for a first time quilter. Would never have attempted an hourglass pattern to begin my quilting adventures.

    Great job! I like the colors you picked! And the diagonal stitching is straight on target to me

    I can only say that I wish I was as brave as you the first time around. Showing and telling!! This looks great and if you don't mention what you feel are the imperfections, no one will notice. They will just be jealous of your talent, as well they should be. Thanks so much for sharing!

    It's just lovely....it has so many special quilting milestones within it....a really great first. You completed a really great little quilt, and learned so many things which will reflect in your next piece.

    I love your fabrics. I'm glad you didn't quit when you ran into challenges. Overcoming challenges is a great part of learning a new skill. Keep up the good work.

    I can't see anything wrong with it! In fact I think that it is a superb piece of work. I am guessing that it is a first piece and really you did great for a first piece, quilting, binding and all. The piece in the binding just makes it 'yours' and no one is going to say it isn't. Should it go for a 'walk' it will be easier to identify as being yours. Most quilters do make a 'mistake' or two to personalise their quilts. It is great to see someone who is just beginning, taking the plunge and trying something new - all in one go! (patchwork piecing through tutorials, quilting by machine, then binding and problem solving). It is something I am going to try and learn - just get on in there and do it! Thank you for the inspiration and welcome to the board!

    I think it's fantastic and will bring you "sunshine" in your cubicle...... also de-stress you. Enjoy!
    If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours!
