    This is my first completed quilt from the material that was 'rejected' for the Christmas gift quilt. I figured I'd practice on this one, and it is completed. The 'gift' is all pieced together and waitting more $$ to purchase the material for backing and batting. The practice quilt gave me some difficulty when it came time to bind. The binding wasn't as easy as the piecing it all together and machine quilting, but turned out.

    You're no longer a "newbie" Your quilt looks great. I'm a newbie too and am about to start my quilting process. I hope I am as successful as you were. What will be your next project?

    Nice Job! Binding gets easier as you get more experience.

    It turned out really nice, but practice does make it a lot easier. I can't tell you how many bindings I have done, but now, I hardly have to think how to do it, it just comes naturally.
