    No wonder you are pleased! That is an excellent quilt and an astonishing first quilt.

    Netflix and diet Coke are two of my favorite quilting tools, too.

    Oh, I am sitting here with the biggest smile on my face thanks to everyone's kind words! I can't wait to make another...just as soon as I get done with finals and graduation. I have a few ideas of what I'd like to try next; I've been scouring the boards looking for ideas. I tend to lean mostly toward traditional patterns. Part of me really wants to try applique. (maybe a small project to try it out!) Also, my dad is really itching for me to make him one now! So maybe he will get first priority

    Thank you so much again for all the amazingly kind words! I will be sure to pay it forward and get more involved here on the boards.

    You did a great job on your quilt, you should be proud. We always are own worst critics. Love the colors.

    I am totally impressed and you absolutely should be as proud of this as you are! My first quilt was a hot mess but I still love that silly little thing. This is stunning. Beautifully pieced and the quilting is just right for it. Not so dense that it takes away from the beauty of the fabrics or the piecing. You're in for many years of awesome quiltmaking!! Can't wait to see what you come up with next!

    What a beautiful quilt!!! I am awe-struck that this is your first quilt! But the pic I like best is the one with the finished quilt and the cup of coffee/cocoa....it looks so soft and cuddly....would be great to curl up in it! Congratulations!! Polly

    A stunning quilt. I love everything about it - the pattern, the colors, the backing, the quilting and that last photo is something out of a magazine. You go girl!
