    Terrific job! Keep up the good work. Before long, you will be writing your own instructional books.

    asking a quilter to mend is like asking picasso to paint your garage

    Your first quilt is just beautiful. Forty is very young!! I was almost 47 when I started after my boys moved out and had a little more time to sew.

    That's awesome! It has such a modern look! Have you been bitten by the quilting bug? I'm thinking that's a yes. :-)

    Really cute! Don't feel like you're getting a late start. I retired from teaching elementary school 3 years ago, began volunteering at my church's charity quilting and became hooked. I have an art minor, but never did much with it until now. I use those skills all the time when selecting fabrics, patterns and quilts. I am in heaven when working on a quilt. Aren't you glad you discovered this??? I sure am.

    Very good. Like your color choices and placement. You seem to have a good eye for composition, too. I thi nk you have a very bright and flourishing future in quilting. Looking forward to seeing your next "work of art". Keep up the good work!

    Oh wow! I'm also in my forties and just started sewing/quilting! I'm kind of on my own learning though. I'm all over the net looking at lessons, lol. What an inspiration you are to me! Thanks, that's just beautiful!

    It's very pretty! And I started in my 40's too! Never too late to learn! Looks like you're gonna be a pro!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?
