    Your first quilt. My heavens you have my respect for sticking to it. That was a lot of time and effort for a first quilt. I think of a first quilt as a fast to do, get it done, and get hooked. I don't think of one as this intense amount of work.

    It is gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. Congrats.

    Thank you all... I began this quilt through a quilt club at my work, It took 1 1/2 year to complete. I do not think I will attempt anything like this for awhile. I want to explore some piecing and other techniques.

    Thank you all for your kind words.. It's not a perfect quilt but it is in my eyes. I am very proud of it. :)

    You should be sooooo proud. Beautiful work. I am still trying to master the art of applique & I'll be at it a long time before I accomplish such a beautiful piece of art! Keep up the good work. Quilting is so much fun!!
