    Enola: that is so cute, just perfect for a little fella, Thomas and Buzz Lightyear, what boy wouldn't be thrilled :P

    And you can be very proud too enola05. You have nothing to feel shamed over. That is a darling and well-made quilt! What little man wouldn't just love that!?! :)

    Thank you for the comments, you are all so kind! This was paper pieced, or it would have been very wonky :lol: I have done other craft sewing, which did help with piecing. Most of the credit however goes to the encouragement of everyone here :D :D :D I am dreading the binding aspect of the quilting process, the binding is laying on the quilt in the picture so that I could see what it looked like. I am waiting until I get all the tops completed and then will tackle the quilting and binding all at once. My oldest daughter loves purple and the one I am working on now for my younger daughter is in blues which are her favorite.

    The purple quilt is beautiful My daughter in law loves purple and teal, and that's a great example of what I will be making for her. I love it. The kid's quilt is just too cute too. You did a nice job. Sara

    Impressive first quilt! Especially on the diagonal.
    I really love purple and green together.
