    We do what we gotta do sometimes, and I've done exactly the same on the binding. Love the colors and pattern
    and good job on the quilting and piecing. Keep up the good work.

    You guys have made me so happy! Thank you so much! I am now working on a quilt for my MIL that I will present to her during Spring Break when I visit her in New Hampshire. I started one a few years ago when I first tried quilting and I never finished it and gave up on quilting altogether. It was the first time I'd ever touched a sewing machine and I didn't know anything about cutting, measuring, oh, it was the worst. But within the last year, before I even attempted to start again, I watched tons of videos, read tons of books in the library, visited a sewing shop (there isn't a quilt shop right near me) and I got a lot of the questions answered. You have renewed my confidence! Thank you so much for your support!

    Great job. You can always add borders to a top that is too small and then it becomes a lap quilt. Have done it many times.

    I love the colors and pattern, and the grid quilting sets it off perfectly. What a great addition to your cubicle!

    Great job! Love your table topper-the colors are so pretty. Your binding makes your topper unique.
    This too shall pass.

    Beautiful. Don't point put mistakes to anyone. Who would know? You learned so much and that's the important thing.

    I recently ran across some blocks from one of my first quilts OMG what a mess!!! I found extra material in my stash from that quilt and remade the blocks to add to a memory quilt for myself at some point...periodically I pull out that messy block to remind myself how far I've come!!! I truly don't know how the long armer got that mess quilted!!

    For your first quilt, this is excellent. GREAT job. Not even the dogs liked my first quilt, they chewed it up.

    first off, i love the colors you chose. secondly and probably most importantly i LOVE your attitude about it! i think it came together fine! i learned a lesson about rotary blades not long ago; my lqs quilting mentor told me i sure go thru alot of blades; do you know if you torque them down tight they wear out way faster? i only put mine barely finger tight now and although i do have to retighten it once in a while they last SO MUCH LONGER now! thought i would pass that along just in case you or anyone else didn't know. give it a try!

    You did a very nice job and I like the little color in the binding.
    Quilting is an addiction that you can be proud of and enjoy.
