    Hi and welcome to the board from Iowa. Nothing to be embarrassed about. We all have a beginner's quilt; some of us have many of them (smile). Looks like you are on the right track and this will be very nice when done. Keep going!!

    I think you are doing great! Quilting is like everything else we learn to do well in life ~ we do it a step at a time and it takes practice and patience to get better and better. You are on the right track. Your fabric choice is great.

    Don't be embarrassed. Quilting, like any fine art (or sport lol), takes practice. If it were so easy, everyone would do it. Remember the end goal, to have something to snuggle with. If all you ever accomplish is that, then you've succeeded.

    I love puppies. Can't wait to see your finished product.

    We all started somewhere. I think you will do just fine. And if you have questions, just ask. No need to feel embarrassed. That is why this board is here. To help.

    Welcome to the Quilting Board. You are doing fine - just remember, you are your own worst critic. Like others have said, we all have to start somewhere and believe me, my first (and second, third, etc.) attempts at learning a new skill leave plenty of room for growth.
