    Congratulations on your first finish! You did a great job. I love the pups in the picture BTW.

    Yay for the quilt and for the furry friends. I have lots of photos bombed by my various pets

    I'm really impressed with how fast you finished it up and can't wait to see the next one! No pressure, really...

    Nice quilt. I remember my first quilt, and it did not look no where near as good as yours. Keep it up.....

    Congratulations on your achievement. You know you're a quilter when you're already planning the next one before finishing the current one! Looks like your pups are saying, "Okay, this one's great, but we really don't want to share it. Gotta make one for each of us!"

    Looks like you have a fan club admiring your first quilt! Congrats on making your first quilt! Every quilt I have ever made is perfectly imperfect. A good thing to remember in your quilting journey is when you make a mistake in your quilt, just call it a design change! )

    I love your colorful, fun quilt and for sure it is "dog" approved. Your fur babies are happy with it for sure. I bet you have many more pretty quilts in your future.

    ! Welcome to the community! The most important thing to remember is that you made a quilt! If there are what you call mistakes (what we prefer to call design elements), no one will even notice. You will learn things with every quilt you make. Some of us have been quilting for decades and we still are learning new things and how to improve on the old ways. We all also have UFO's (unfinished objects) on our shelves that we may never finish partly because they became work and stop being fun. If something becomes troublesome, sit it down, go for a walk, have some wine, relax. It will still be there when you return and usually you will be able to see the problem and solve it. it will bring you a lifetime of joy (and gifts). Love your helpers.

    Making quilts are enjoyable, glad you enjoyed the process. My first was a rail road quilt.
    Create something beautiful from scraps.

    Woo-Hoo!!! What a wonderful first quilt. You should be very, very proud of how it turned out. Looks like your quilt inspectors approve of what you have done. Can't wait to see what you come up with next.

    Wonderful! Beautiful choice of fabrics and nice design. And clearly you don't need our approval, because you got the most important approval you need! The canine seal .

    Hope to see more of your quilts in the coming years. Congratulations on an awesome job!
