I started quilting in April 06. Have worked hard at improving the skills of quilting. Still need a LOT of practice. My biggest problem is matching colors. I am not creative. Hope you like what I have already done (and gave away). these are some wall hangings that I did mostly for practice.

Your angels are beautiful! Are they applique or embroidery or some other technique?

All three wall hangings were machine embroiderd and then just quilted by stippling around the design and stitching in the ditch on the rows. I enjoy doing them as they can be completed in a short time. The log cabin quilts were done with a 1 inch (light color) sewn with a 1 1/2 inch strip (dark color) the block measures out to 10 1/2 inch square unfinished. I added extra rows as the kids wanted them to hang over the mattress. They are used as a bedspread.

All three are great! I'm not a color expert but I think your color choices are real good. Keep up the good work.

In stitches,
BJ/NYC
