    Your first quilt will always be special, hang onto it. By the way, you did a great job of piecing. Please show us the finished quilt.

    I think you did a lovely job and I too like the navy blue strips in the middle area. I think that fabric if you have enough or at least a navy blue fabric would make a great border if your thinking of putting a border around it. It would frame the quilt nicely.

    My first quilt was also the same pattern and took me 20 more/less years to complete it as well. Machine pieced, hand quilted, stitch in the ditch. Love the layout of your squares, too! Keep up the good work.

    Well!! Thank you everyone, you are so encouraging I have loved every minute of it and yes, I am planning my second quilt, it's going to be a table runner for the garden table for summer lunches (I have added a photo of the fabrics I am using) but not got the pattern figured out yet.

    The navy border sounds like a good idea, I was thinking about what colour to choose and it has to be something contrasting don't you think, to bring the blue together.

    Your first quilt is lovely, and it looks so nice and square! My first quilt did not lie very flat....or square...

    Chooklady - great job on your first quilt! We'd love to see it after it's quilted, and then tell us what's next!

    A chook is hen or a chicken, I did look after 12 ex battery hens over the past few years but sadly they have passed. I have one left now and her name is Duster, she's lovely and she likes a cuddle as she is the last one left.

    Hmmmm, quilted..... not sure that will happen, I don't have that ability yet, although I could do some straight lined pattern onto it. How about concentric squares on some of the blocks? You have me thinking now
