    If these are your first pieces, I can't wait to see what you do later. They are very well done. I haven't tried a hexagon yet - looks challenging.

    Thanks - hexagons were the easiest out of the lot so far.

    And here is my block from this week......I will not be doing curves for a long long time after doing this block. It made me :shock:

    Oh thank you so much Lisa, I really appreciate it. It is nice to get some outside input about what I am doing.

    You guys are really sweet.

    Nina - definitely give the hexagons a go, they are so easy and good to do in front of the TV :lol:

    You are doing beautifully for a beginner! I bet your teacher is proud of your work so far. I'm impressed they were all sewn by hand! Make more! :D :D :D

    You do beautiful work and your blocks are beautiful. Love your colors. My hat is off to you for hand quilting. I avoid hand sewing with a passion but I appreciate the work and effort put into a hand quilted piece. Good job.

    Kaitlynn'sMummy:
    I love your Drunkard's Path block...I hope you'll re-consider and do another one in the future as this block is gorgeous and makes a wonderful blanket. I love it and have made several pieces using this pattern. I've found that each time I make the block it gets easier and I enjoy making it more because I learn from each try. Thanks for sharing your block. It really is lovely.

    Oh my goodness everyone. Thank you so much. I am really overwhelmed at all of your comments.

    I think because I enjoy doing it so much that I put the effort into it and try and make it as good as I can. With each block I do it gets easier to match up the seams and make it look like it is supposed to.

    I have only been doing this since 18 February and feel like I have learnt so much in that time and look forard to doing more and more. My ultimate goal is to do at least 1 Baltimore block, which one of the more advanced ladies in our class is doing.

    I only wish I had more time at home to do more, but with a 16 month old it gets hard to find the time.

    Thank you again everyone, it really means a lot to me that people I don't know (who I am sure I will get to know) think that my work is good. :D

    I'm with them! If these are your first attempt, I can't wait to see it all finished. I do not have the patience for hand quilting. I took a class when I started, and the teacher said we absolutely had to hand piece and quilt. Well, that sampler is still in my closet 10 years later, and it is not finished. I admire anyone who has the patience to do that fine of work. Keep it up, and reconsider the Drunkard's path. You give me hope. I have not attempted one, because I really hate template cutting.

    Anyway, good job, hon! :D
