    my very first quilt!!

    This was the first time I even attempted doing a quilt (any only about my 5th or so sewing project ever!!) I'm thrilled with how it turned out, despite the issues I had. I even jumped right in to FMQ the thing too! It was so much fun. I can't wait to do more!

    That is just a darling quilt! You did a great job. It is such a feeling of satisfaction to finish it with your own free motion quilting, isn't?

    You should be very proud! It has really "cute" fabrics, very fresh looking!

    Looks great to me. I love the blocks and the way you quilted. I am still practising doing straight lines. I like your loops and curves.

    I am so impressed. It is so wonderful that you even tried FMQ. I will hopefully see more of your work here. I enjoyed your quilt. I have such fun with FMQing and am thrilled for you that you jumped right in. So wonderful
