    You did a great job! You will learn something from every one you make and will improve your skills as you go. All of us are still finding out things we didn't know at the beginning.

    I think its very pretty and for a first quilt you sure chose a whole lot of blocks to start with. I see a beautiful quilt that many would be happy to say was their first. Good for you for jumping in and joining all of us here. Its seriously addicting. At least its not fattening as I have yet to figure out how to eat and quilt at the same time. Keep it up and we will look forward to your future quilts.

    It's a beauty. Don't let self criticism/doubt stop you in your tracks. Just make quilts....each will be better than the last and when you look at your earlier ones, you will smile and think "Wow...this is good, but I've really come a long way".

    Linda - I can empathise with how you feel about getting things right - I'm a bit (lol) of a perfectionist and have to struggle to let things pass. I'm a new quilter too and am amazed at how much my quilting is improving with practice and the help of the lovely ladies in my group. That said, if a part really niggles me, I redo it - even though others don't notice - but a lot I let go. Your quilt looks lovely and it's only you who might notice any imperfections.

    You did a great job. Noone is perfect & you are the only one who knows it's not.

    Everyone makes mistakes, no matter how long they have been quilting or sewing. It is just part of the process. Don't get discouraged, just keep going. Your quilt is a labor of love! And I like what you created.

    if we could all quilt perfectly the first try out there would be no room to grow. what fun would that be? every quilt we make we learn something new, try new techniques and just have fun. just remember, no one is perfect. a friend of mine and I look at the quilts in the magazines, look real close, some corners don't meet perfectly, so that tells you even the pros aren't perfect. just enjoy the process

    It is lovely and bright. Mistakes...... only you see them and if you take two steps backwards, they are minimized. Anyway, as long as we learn from our mistakes, all is well. Now we are waiting for your next show-and-tell.

    That quilt looks great! I see no reason for you to be hung-up about your projects. Go for it! Thanks for sharing.
    The bad news is - time flies.
    The good news is - you're the pilot!

    I have been sewing a long, long time. Quilting, not so long. Just the other day I thought, now how in the world do I make that mistake AGAIN. We are our own worst critics because we KNOW where EVERY little boo boo is. No one else does (usually) unless we point it out. Just keep going and you will gain so much confidence and know-how. This quilt looks great from where I am sitting. The colors go well together. Please share your next project with us--and quickly. Remember we didn't learn to walk proficiently in one day.

    I have a sign in my studio that says: There are no rules. There are no mistakes. If I make a mistake I can fix it. But, again, there are no rules! As stated before, only you will know of the mistake, the labor of love will always shine thru & no one else will notice. You did a great job, keep posting more of your work.
