    That's a very pretty quilt. Thanks for sharing. Did you machine the applique on or did you sew by hand? Did you use blanket stitch?

    I machine applique, because it kills my hands to sew by hand...

    This is a very cute quilt! What's this about not as good???? It's NOT about "as good" here! It's about celebrating where we are at the time and sharing with each other, coaching each other (when asked) and enjoying our victories and creativity, regardless of age and stage. So thanks for sharing - that is a darling quilt and your appliques make it shine. Happy Spring!
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!

    Thank you! I am celebrating for sure, because I have been apprehensive about FMQing that I would just SID on all of my quilts. The more I make the better I get and I am so excited to see what I come up with next. Thanks for lookin!

    I just made this from a pattern that I posted previously called bright bricks, but I didn't follow the pattern exact so most of it is just me sewing from memory.

    very pretty quilt. You did a great job with it, especially for the first quilting and applique. I love the colors also.

    Its a very pretty quilt. Dont underestimate your abilities. I have never free motion quilt on anything. Yours is just
    as good as what I have seen on this and other boards. Stand tall and be proud.
