    I managed to borrow back the first large quilt I made, 3 years ago, when I first started this hobby/addiction. I made it up in my head and it is definitely not well quilted (SID 10 inches apart) but looking back on it now, I'm still not embarrassed by it. I gave it to my son & DIL and have convinced them to use it (they have a dog and are both paranoid it will get wrecked but they are the only 2 that really appreciate my hobby so I told them I would have a good excuse to make another. Pictures aren't very good, the background is black and the stitching is gold (denim thread). Thanks for looking .

    very nice. That is really sweet of your kids to respect your hobby that they would worry about ruining something.

    I can see why they are hesitant to let dogs on this beauty. As much as I love my pets, would also not want something this special to be damaged. This is truly art.

    There are 42 different symbols (they all mean something to do with life (Asian) but DIL has the paper telling each one. They were all done by machine, thick thread in the bobbin and I have no idea how I adjusted the tension to get the black(top) thread to come thru. I will try to attach a close up pic so you can see the thread. The 2 kids(adults) I gave it to are just about the best people in the world, they are so "not" into material possessions but this hit them both the same way.

    I have alot of quilts my inlaws made....alot from the 1930's that I proudly display. I know there are errors on them (nobody would know) but that shows they were handmade with love.

    I am assembling my first quilt now and I know there will be errors, but, I don't care cause its my first one.

    Its beautiful and I love the black.
