    That is an unbelievable first quilt, what more can I say, everyone else has already said it all. It looks professional and award winning.

    I can't wait to see what your second quilt looks like.

    Well ladies i entered my blue roses quilt in the local fair just hoping I would win some kind of a little ribbon. and just look what it won. If those judges only knew that I can't cut 2 squares of fabric the same size, lol!

    more than i had ever dreamed of winning

    Congratulations - great job. I assume one of the big ribbons is a Best of Show - what is the other one?

    thank you all. the pink one was my first quilt, the blue one that won the ribbons was my second quilt - same design just different colors. i gave the pink one to my daughter for a wedding gift. the 2 blue ribbons are First Place from 2 different judges. And the red, white & blue big ribbon is Best in Division by a 3rd judge. That's the way they explained it to me - the ladies that work the fair. anyhow, I was pleased as punch. After I pick it up from the fair this coming sunday, it will be hanging on display at the Bobbin Box. That's where I bought all my stuff to make it and where I took quilting classes. But thank you all again for your kind words.

    Oh my goodness I am sincerely impressed....your work looks like that done by a seasoned, professional quilter! Gorgeous, gorgeous! You have every reason to be bursting your buttons with pride.

    Keep up the marvelous work. You remind me of Kitty Pippen who started quilting at an 'older' age and is cranking out beautiful work all the time.

    :D

    dojo: absolutely beautiful, good job, congratulations! You do deserve a ribbon. You could enter it in your county fair next year. I'm planning to have something ready to go by then.

    Simply too beautiful for words. Please do not feel as though you wished you had started quilting before NOW - what you are doing NOW is what counts! Perhaps all of your wanting to quilt just so happens to come out in this simply delicious quilt! Congratulations!

    Dojo36--your quilts are beautiful. You tempt me to think about getting an embroidery machine!

    Mawmawbeve_60--I love the quilt in your avatar. Is the pattern available someplace? I like all kinds of quilts, but log cabin patterns are my special love.

    well i just love my embroidery machine, it's a Janome Memory Craft 300E, it's at the lowest price range of all the other Janomes. the machine makes a person look like they're smart, but you buy a book with a CD, and it has the patterns on it and you mark your material and let her rip.
    looks like i'm good but i'm really not. i've seen so many of everybody's beautiful quilts on here and there's no way i could piece a quilt like yall do. i've never done that and probably will never try it. i would just end up with a big mess as I cannot cut 2 pieces of fabric the same size no matter how hard i try to measure & cut. so the embroidery is a much easier way to go.

    You should be so very proud of your creation. To me quilting is art in its highest form.
