Well some wha against my good judment I am posting pictures of the quilt I am working on.

It has some rough spots and I had hoped it would look better when I got this close to finishing it.

I plan to make decorative stiching over the quilt squares , I hope fully to fully cover up the original stitching because a lot of it looks really bad.

I am making it for a day bed for my daughter and I decided to put a skirt on it

Thanks for the photo. The colors are some of my favorites.
The skirt adds interest. Be sure to post a photo when you finish.

Blue is my favorite color and the stripes bring out the blue and gray. Good job.

Can't wait to see the finished project with all of the decorative stitches.

I am not sure why you were afraid to post the pic ? Your colors work well together, the pattern is fine, looks good to me :lol:

Really neat that you are making it longer on the sides. How old is your daughter ? My sons would need it longer to cover all their "stuff" under the bed :wink: LOL

I have learned alot of things I did wrong on this one and I think the main one was I did not work in squares I worked in strips from top to bottom.

Oh well it has been a learning experiance and I have learned a lot since I joined the Quilting Board and I want to thank everyone for their encouragement and support.

Now I know where I can go when I have any questions and that will help a lot. I hope I don't become a pest since I really love quilting and would like to be able to turn out some as beautiful as some I have seen on the Quilting Board.

To be honest, the quilt is very attractive. I like the colors alot. I see a couple of misaligned seams, but nothing I haven't encountered on my own quilts. Once it gets all sandwiched and quilted, these minor flaws will seem to disappear. :thumbup:

I love the addition of the skirt to this quilt :D:D:D
I have used decorative stitching too to hide some boo boo's :wink:
Never be leery of asking for help or a question, that is what this board is all about, helping and sharing :D:D:D
