    Wow! I would have given up and sent it off to be quilted after the second round. Good for you! You didn't give up and look how much you learned in the process. I love it and the backing is such a complement to the whole quilt. Great job! :thumbup:

    Wow, such patience and perseverance! Your determination to finish your quilt is amazing. You could probably write an essay on all that you learned through getting your first quilt done. Thanks for sharing your story.

    What a great way to use striped fabric! It looks so good on the front and the back, too. You did a great job keepingn the stripes going straight on the back, too.

    Very nice! I really like it and the colors. My first quilt I decided to do an Attic Window... I didn't know about bias at that time... and nobody told me, either :hunf: So I sewed the first three rows together and my points weren't perfect... I was destroyed! It sat on my ironing board for 3 months... yes 3 months. A friend set me free when she said, " if you can't see the points don't exactly match when you are riding by on a galloping horse... don't worry about it!" Saved my bacon..and I've been quilting every since... that was in 1985. So now I pass that advise on to you... it looks great...and your daughter will love it because Mom made it just for her. Good job. :mrgreen: :lol: :mrgreen:

    It's a disappearing 9 patch. I've shown it to a couple of experienced quilters and they couldn't see it. I followed the directions. :roll:

    I love it!!!!!! Thanks
    :!: That's great advice - that's kind of how I went about the binding. I just attacked it. ;)
