    Wow, what a beauty. You sure picked a hard one for the first. My first
    was the fence rail and still like to do for a quick one. Good job.

    Wow! Another "first" that my "hundredth" couldn't compete with!! :D You did such a good job on this first quilt. I think it was Carla P that said you've raised the bar for the experienced quilters? She's right!! It's simply beautiful! :)

    If that's your first quilt, I can only imagine what the next ones to follow will look like. I am a beginner too and would never even attempt such a difficult quilt!!!! My first was a rail fence pattern and even it took a long time to complete. And frankly, I am intimitated by applique and will have to work up to it. A big CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

    My goodness! What a wonderful quilt. Great colors. You sure didn't start out easy. I can't imagine what you'll be doing in ten years. You should be very proud.

    If that is your first quilt, I am going to take up knitting, I'll never be able to keep up to you. It is beautiful, I can only imagine what you are capable of for an encore.

    try some KK2000 next time it work most wonderfully.... I use t to layer my quilts too. Just never put a steam iron to it.... it will eventually go away or just run a warm iron over and it is gone instantly.
    KK2000 is a Sulky of America product.. it use it in so many craft and sewing

    a nice zz for a beginner is great. A satin st has to be practiced.

    If you get to clost you get knots and it looks bad till you practice and get it just right, I think you was wise to zz for the first time.

    you can also use decorative stitches to do appliques... and you might want to try steam a seam lite also... then you do not have fuzzy edges between the zz.
    Benn teaching this for years so any questions, PM me
