    How about GREAT for a beginner. Did you do a class, or just on your own? Very nice work!!

    That looks wonderful! Did you hand-applique all those masks on? The work looks great on them.

    Looks great. I would not have guessed you were a beginner.

    Thank you all for your kind remarks! I used wonder under on the masks then a wide machine zig zag around all its borders. The cutting out of the masks and sewing all around it took up the most time of course.

    Yes it was in a book of wall quilts and whatever it didn't explain in the directions (such as doing the binding) I looked up on youtube.

    Great job. If you're a beginner, I can't wait to see what you're doing 6 months from now!! Thanks for sharing the pictures.
