    I am teaching myself to quilt. Here is my first block! My dear MIL sent me her featherweight for my effort. I am excited that it is turning out at all!

    Keep up the great work. Love the colors. Hang onto and take care of that Featherweight. There are quilters out there that would almost give up their first born for one. Okay maybe not their first born child but their first born stash. LOL! I bought my highschool English/French teacher's when she went into a nursing home and it wasn't cheap. Those are really a treasure, just keep it cleaned and oiled and it will last for a long, long time.
    I'm looking forward to seeing this block in your first quilt!

    Thank you all for your support! I will post the finished quilt....someday! I am thinking of a solid brown border around each square. If I do the border I can make a twin blankie instead of a baby sized blanket.

    If you make some blocks with brown borders and some with blue and then alternate them I think you'll like the finished product much better than just using brown. Or if you use all brown then use blue for the sashing between them. Who knows? by the time you get them done, set together and add your outer borders you may have a king size quilt! :D

    Great colors and your points are fabulous. I have quilted for about a hundred years and sometimes my points still don't match. Maybe that's because I'm getting blind in my old age...lol. Keep up the good work sweety. You're starting off with a bang!!!!!

    Well done. It's such fun when you're new to quilting and each block is an accomplishment. As the others have said, it gets addictive in no time at all.
