    Very first ever quilted anything for me

    The first thing my DH said " the lines aren't straight". I told him I wasn't trying for straight.


    The block is a 10 minute block with folded HST added to the corners.


    The little bag is for my BFF , 3 old GD.


    Thank you For inspiring me to move ahead with my quilting. BeckyName:  005.JPG

    An A+ on both projects. Love your version of the 10 min block. The purse is darling.

    Great job. Looks like we two Beckys are about even. I've quilted, but my first free motion quilting was just this past week. Anyway, the purse is adorable-she will love it.

    What are you going to do with the 10 minute block?

    I admire your bravery to just dive in and get it done. A great start! I love your twist on the ten-minute block. Love the color combination. And the GD will love carrying that bag around. Congratulations! Keep up the good work. and PS: My DH is the same way with my quilts and my cakes. But I know he's proud of my work. It's just how guys express themselves sometimes.
    One step at a time, always forward.
