    thank you I was kinda thinking the same thing I do have a walking foot ( never have tried to use it yet) I think I will practice on something else first.

    I will have to look that up what is echo quilting?

    Nice quilt. Love the colors. For a first quilt you might want to do just a simple cross hatch. Too much time and difficulty may crush your love of quilting. Maybe you are up to the challenge of free motion. I just cannot get the hang of it and admire those that do such a beautiful job of it. Good luck either way.

    What a great job you did! Since its your first quilt, I doubt you know how to FMQ, so I'd tie it (be sure and tie close together following the instructions from the batting and learn how to do a square knot by googling it) or stitch in the ditch. Can't wait to see what you do next!

    Your first quilt is lovely! Great job. A simple meandering quilting would be nice on this busy quilt.

    Your first quilt came out great ! I can't believe it was just yard sale finds....I have seen some where they bought the materials to go together and it did not look this nice!

    Love the colors - you did a GREAT job! I bet you will be hooked in no time.
    My first quilt was a disappearing 9 patch too.

    It is really very pretty and hard to believe it is your first quilt. I love the colors you chose. Very nice.
