    Here is the finished lap quilt. It's my first one.

    I machine pieced and quilted it. Simple stitch in the ditch.

    Fabulous, you did a great job! How long did it take you? How did you learn to quilt...in a class, with a friend, or by the book, (oh I tried that one, :()

    Nice job really, I like the size, colors and layout!

    Well done! Do you have another project to get started on? I usually can't even wait a day when I have finished a quilt I have working feverishly on before starting the next! Want to be sure to stay in "The Zone" or it is harder to get back into it if I let too much time lapse!

    It took me about a month but only because I let it lay and didn't work on it for a couple of weeks....waiting on inspiration!!

    I am still learning by trial and error!! I have had the Fons and Porter book for over 6 yrs. but mostly I just look at pictures and do my own thing!!

    I just started this adventure a couple of months ago, so I still have TONS to learn!!

    Lot's of mistakes on this one you just can't see them from far away!!
