    Okay everyone,
    I am sure if you look closely you can find all my boo-boos. Some of the squares arent perfect, some of the rows are a bit crooked, and of course it could use more quilting.
    But let me tell you I am dang proud.......this is called Saddle Tramps and since we raise Appaloosas, and consider ourselves saddle tramps, it seemed perfect.
    It was the first time I used a rotary cutter, first time I tried a quilt out of a pattern, and the first time I made something for "us".
    My sweetheart loves it and he is sooooo supportive....

    We don't LOOK for boo-boos! We are just honored that other quilters share their work with us.

    Nice looking quilt! Welcome from Wisconsin.

    Congratulations on quilting something for you. You may be new, but you have accomplished something many of us havent been able to do for years. Seems like every time I think "this on is for me" someone else comes along and "needs" it more than I do. Just keep stitching and enjoying your hobby, that is the important part. As for the boo-boos, someone once said, "If you can see it from a racing horse, stop, and redo it...otherwise just keep going" or something like that.

    Pat yourself on the back and give yourself a hug. You got it done and it looks great.
