    I am so excited......I finished my very first quilt. Not fancy by any means but it is just the beginning. When I started sewing all those little hexagons I planned on doing a queen size but decided I probably wouldn't live long enough to make that many. So, it ended up being a baby quilt for my nephews new baby. I appliqued the rosettes on to 12 inch squares and then did machine stitching as I went along. I admire you ladies who can do that much hand sewing. I have arthritis in my hands so they start hurting after awhile. Anyway, hope you all are enjoying your weekend.

    :)

    It's beautiful. I love to hand quilt, but am gradually moving to machine work as my hands are not so happy about sewing any more!

    You really did a nice job; I can't believe it is your first. The outline stitching is great!

    Wow.. excellent job for a first quilt! And you didn't choose such an easy pattern. LOL

    I know the parents of the lucky baby are going to be bowled over. Can't wait to see your future projects!
