    My first or my second?

    In September I started a King Size Quilt, still under construction. But I had some fabric I was wanting to use and I was fascinated by the D9P. So I put the king size on hold and put together this quilt for my father's "fiance." It is just a small lap size. So I it's not the first one I started. But it is the first one I finish. Once I finish it! I don't have time before Christmas to quilt it, so I will just tie it.

    Thank you Sylvia. I'm really nervous about it. I'm not a seamstress at all. At first, even getting the machine threaded correctly was a challenge. This one has lots of "issues" with some crooked seams and points not lined up just right. But the woman I am giving it to will be very understanding. She has been supportive of me trying to learn. I have so many ideas in my head and patterns in my to-do book; but it will take a long time for me to attempt most of them.

    Pretty quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Congrats on finishing your first quilt. I like the colors and the pattern. The backing fabric is beautiful and fits so well.

    Its so cheerful She is definetly going to love it- I've been quilting almost 40 yrs and I don't think theres been one that I didn't find something wrong with it-but apparently I'm the only one that see's the few bad seams/points-my MIL said quilting is suppose to relieve tension=not cause it

    Absolutely beautiful, very good color choices, she will love it. FMQ quilting would really set it off, too bad you don't have time to do it, or at least squiggy lines down it and across. Just keep making quilts and you will be surprised how good you will get.

    The colors and the quilt really work. I hope my first quilt turns out this pretty.
    I'm quilting a cheater quilt now, but I don't count that.
