    My very first Finished Project!

    I finally have a finished project to show off! I finished up this table runner the other day and wanted to show it off.

    It's hand-pieced and machine quilted...my first time machine quilting anything. There are mistakes when you look closely, but from this angle it looks great and I'm really proud of it!

    Come by and see what I'm up to on my blog...

    Fantastic! We can tell you are totally HOOKED. Awaiting bigger things from you.

    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

      Very nice and hand pieced wow...I am also a new quilter and enjoy the tutorials so much I have been trying them all out and love it but when Jenny finishes a even just a table runner and machine quilts it it looks 10 times nicer than mine as I can only do stitch in the ditch or straight lines I wish I could afford to take everything in and have it quilted but that is ou of the question for me I am spending my limit on fabric and tools right now....

            debbie, don't worry about your projects not looking like Jenny's - she's a pro and you and I are in the early stages. Besides, where's the fun in having someone else quilt our projects?? Hang in there, practice practice practice, and you'll do great!

                  That looks great! Love the colors that you put together - and by the way, I don't see any mistakes.

                        Looks great! I am still working on my first project. I started with a lap quilt but am thinking a table runner would have been a better choice.

                            Sandy, you are so right...I'm completely hooked!

                            Thank you, everyone, for you kind words!

                            I've wanted to quilt since I was a little girl, but once my grandmothers were gone I didn't have a personal teacher. So I just put it off for too many years. But this year I decided to make it a priority!

                            I have a top done for a lap quilt and I'm putting the border on this morning for my daughter's twin sized top. I'll post more pics when their finished.

                            Thanks again for welcoming me into your community!

                              I liked the table runner a lot. It is really beautiful. Summerk certainly deserves credit for her achievement. The good thing about it is that it has got good finishing. I found it so appealing that I have decided to make one myself. I would request her to let me know how she made it.
