    Thank you again everyone for the great information on attaching binding! I ended up attaching to the front with machine and hand stitching to the back. It's about the size of a large lap or crib quilt.
    LOTS of mistakes...LOL!...but I love it! I also made two blocks for the Soldiers quilt through Moda, and my second quilt is in the works!! I definitely have been bitten by the bug!!

    That is beautiful. Did you do the quilting? It's wonderful, even for a 10th quilt! You're going to have to start attending your quilters anonymous meetings with the rest of us.

    I love your quilt. Such pretty colors and very nice quilting. You're going to have a hard time convencing me that it's your first!!! My first is hidden very well, never to see daylight.

    Thank you, you're so sweet! Yes, I did everything myself. Lots of FMQ practice on the machine before I attempted it! My stitch in the ditch leaves a lot to be desired! LOL!

    From what I can see, your work is great. Cornerstones fit very nicely. I've recentlty been having fits with one of these. Keep it up and have fun.

    You're off to a great start. Nicely pieced and quilted. Glad you caught the bug and found the Quilting Board. This site has given me a lot of expert advice.
