    I've been sewing all my life, but recently have decided to take up quilting (I guess I figure I don't have enough unfinished garment and knitting projects laying around my house... ).

    Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and share some pictures of my first quilt. It is a Quilts for Kids quilt and it is ready to send back. I thought it was a good way to practice and pay it forward a little bit. I'm going to do one more Q4K quilt and then work on some projects for me! Can you tell, I'm obsessed already? :oops:

    Hi! You did an awesome job of quilting this. I just wish my practice looked half as good as your does.

    Welcome from Chattanooga... you did a great job! As a new quilter myself, I just signed up for Quilts for Kids and hope to do some, including preemies, for one of our local hospitals. This is one of the major reasons I want to quilt.

    Welcome from MS. You sound a lot like me. I feel guilty about my unfinished knitting projects!! They are out of sight in a cedar chest, but I feel a twinge when I pass by. Someday I will get it all done! Right now quilts are the most fun.

    I just finished my Quilts for Kids and mailed them out yesterday. I did 4 this time - 2 of my own & 2 they provided. One they sent me was the same fabric as yours! It was my first time FMQ & your stitching looks so much better than mine. GREAT JOB!
