    Not only is it a very pretty quilt (I love the colors), but the quilting looks good too. Sorry you had to stress it so much, but now it's done and I know your DD will love it!!

    Looks good. Now you are a real quilter.....sew, rip, sew. We all have been there, but look how much you've learned.

    Your quilt is beautiful. I had the same problem with my second quilt but I wasn't brave enough to try hand quilting (i have carpal tunnel) so i had to stick it out on the machine. It was a queen size bursting star design and it seemed like every star I had to tear out one point or another. In the end though, it is all so much worth it. Just think of every stitch as a kiss and a hug from momma. :-)

    Your quilt is terrific! Isn't it amazing how we learn from each project -- although it's sometimes pretty painful! After some of my recent frustrations I'm wondering if I should do a mini-quilt version (like pillow size or wall hanging size) before tackling any new project, so I can learn the nuances BEFORE I've sewn in the mistake a thousand times.

    Anyway, I love your finished quilt!

    I'm not sure I understood all your problems but I hear you pain. We have all been there. It's unfortunate it was so frustrating your first time out. It's a gorgeous quilt and anyone would love to have it. don't give up!! you have a good eye for color, something I sometimes struggle with and your result has to please you.
    Maybe you should take a class and be able to avoid some of the beginner mistakes.
    I love your quilt and salute you for sticking with it.

    Thanks everyone.
    I got to deliver the quilt to my daughter today. She really loves it. She posted a beautiful post on FaceBook about it, and also on her personal blog - she wrote some really beautiful and amazing things about me. It was nice to hear. Things a mother should know but doesn't always get told, ya know?

    It was worth all the struggles and lessons. :)

    Extraordinary colors/print choices! I've seen so many other similar quilts that look like blah, just pieces stuck together. Yours is so well designed, and I'm sure your persistence and perfectionism resulted in beautiful stitching, too.

    Can't wait to see your next quilt!

    I'm sorry you had so many problems, but so glad you stuck with it. Your quilt is gorgeous. I had to go back and look again after you said it is a D9P. It doesn't matter if people (me included until you said what the pattern is) can't tell the pattern. I love how it is laid out. Love your backing too. Your quilting looks good now.
