    Here are some pics of projects I have pieced. Please be gentle as I am still a newbie. Have only done these few projects in three years or so. Life and work got in the way. Now that I am unemployed, a student, and not stressed, quilting is back in my life.

    The three hearts were the first project I sewed on my new Janome 6600P. I attempted applique, machine stitching, stablizing, quilt label, and a hanger all on the same quilt! :roll:

    There is one quilt I missed putting in here. Will post later.

    The large quilt is made of flannels, is sized for my king sized bed. and will have a flannel backing as soon as I get to my fav LQS. I think I will do a random stipple in this one.
    I loved all the colors in this one except for the one that is a bit orange stripe. It is actually a heavy cotton of some type. It was in the kit, so I used it. However, I would take it out if doing one
    again.

    The other heart one is my first attempt alone (no quuilt teacher/friend watching and guiding) at HST. I think I will make it a wall hanging.

    Anyway, be honest and let me know what you think. Thanks for looking.
    gain.

    Thank you Amma. :wink: I am not one to show my work nor to ask for opinions, but that is one reason I love this forum - everyone encourages and lifts up. Thank you so much.

    No this was not. Thinkl it was a pattern in one of the magazines.
    Thanks for your kind words of encouragement.

    The quilts are great and your field makes a perfect background. I'm feeling all "Little House on the Prairie"! :D

    :lol: Thanks Lisa. I'll post a couple of other pics of 'back' yard. It is Almost Heaven. My DS comes just to sit on our deck and take in the beauty and stillness. Maybe I will have to rethink the hot tub for my back. She may never leave. :roll:

    Your quilts are great! Everyone has to learn along the way. I think you have done a terrific job with the ones you have chosen to make! Far better than the ones I did when I started!!

    Oh my. How generous you are. I'm sure you did fine with your first ones. As with anything, we get better the more we practice. Thank you.

    I go to sleep, I wake up, and all these wonderful (blushing), kind comments are posted. And to think I am usually pretty private and thought no one would care. You folks made a liar out of me.

    Sula - if the work is advanced, I wouldn't know it :roll: :roll:
    My old boss and now friend and quilt teacher said not to limit myself. She is a great teacher and wonderful quilter. Very generous and giving of her time, talents, fabric, use of tools, etc. She is my mentor and teacher for quilting and does not cost me a dime. Once in awhile I babysit her home and critters and she reciprocates with her teachings (sometimes money) .

    Cajun - That pattern is in one of the Reiman publication mags. Probably Country Women. If you google it you should find it. I used some old button from grams' box, lace from my wedding dress umpteen years ago, and other bits and pieces. It was fun.
