    Gorgeous quilt. I can't imagine choosing this as my first quilting project but she did an amazing job. She gets an A+ from me! Curious to know if she will now be hooked on quilting like the rest of us!

    I hope she was bitten by the quilting bug and stays with it as she is a natural. The quilt is beautiful as is your DD you both have a right to be very proud.

    If she did not get a superior grade on this project then the teacher is totally ignorant of the math, geometry, spatial, and artistic skills it can take to design, execute, and quilt a quilt! What a marvelous finish!

    WOW... she did a fabulous job on her first quilt! I am wondering what her next one is going to be after she just made it look so easy. Beautiful young lady too.

    Congratulations on a wonderful quilt by anybody's standards. I agree that she certainly may have surpassed the reproduction of Queen Elizabeth's coronation gown as a 'best' project. Keep up the good work!

    JUST BEAUTIFUL! You both should be very proud. If she can do this for her first endeavor I'd like to see what she accomplishes in a few years! She's a natural!!!! Hope she sticks with quilting.
