    I made this 112x112 quilt for my first. I sure learned a lot by trial and error. I have a Janome 11000 SE and wanted to try the embroidery feature so I did all the square centers with a flower. I stitched the binding by hand. For a beginner, I am happy with it but might not advise anyone to take on such a big project for a beginning start.

    Very pretty, and cool idea to embroider the centers. Really getting your money's worth from an embroidery machine. Super quilt, and a "first quilt", too. Congrats!

    You are one brave soul for tackling a such a huge quilt for your first one ... and you did a fabulous job!

    The flower centers are a pretty touch.

    Congratulations on having made a truly beautiful quilt!

    That said, I agree with your advice to other newbies to start with a smaller project.

    FWW. I've pieced a whole bunch of log cabin blocks similar to yours with white squares in their centers - which I intend to machine-embroider. I still haven't gotten up the courage, though. (If I screw up, everything is ruined, right ;-)) Your post has given me some much needed encouragement.

    Next time, I'll do the machine embroidery BEFORE I cut those inner squares.
