    That is so beautiful! You should be so proud of yourself. I have been quilting for close to 10 years or so and I am still using my seam ripper. Sometimes the only way we learn is through mistakes, so I must be close to becoming a genius!

    Wonderful. Sometimes it is best not to know what you're getting into so you just jump right in. You did a fabulous job on the quilt.

    That is a gorgeous sampler quilt! (my favorite kind). Great quilting for one so "young" to quilting!

    Breath-taking! It's like a beautiful sampler or assorted blocks, your colors and piecing are so good and the white background sets it off well.

    So glad they liked it! Me too! It turned out great! It's very unique and can't imagine doing that many different blocks for one project.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    I think you just graduated to more experienced than you think. This quilt sure did stretch your abilities into a whole new level. You did a beautiful job on it & the niece will surely treasure it!
