    New Quilt for Daughter

    My very first pieced quilt was for my daughter, seams didn't match up, things were wonky but I learned along the way.
    Each quilt I have made over the past year that I have been at this have gotten better IMO, not perfect but better. So I saw this quilt somewhere and thought I could do that.
    And behold my first attempt at curved seams, which are not hard at all just a slow process I also did mitered corners for my borders but have not trimmed as some have a pucker and I think I will try to fix them to something I can live with. I told my Daughter I was going to keep it I just love the colors. lol
    My DH picked out the border which is just beautiful!!

    Looks great to me. The blue really pops against the darker background.
    Loosely based on a true story.

          I love this! I attempted a drunkard's path quilt 2 years ago. It is definitely on my " to do" list but way down there! Nice job, and yes, the borders are to die for!

              I love it! Happen to be another one with drunkards path on my to do list. You did a great job Those mitered corners take precision, I've done a couple quilts with them.

                That's a beautiful quilt Dena. I would finish it up and go on to a new challenge. Isn't it amazing how our quilts teach us so much.

                      Very pretty. I really like the color combination. Nothing wrong with wonky. It was made from the heart and that is what matters.

                        Your hubby clearly has great taste (well, we already knew that since he married you ). What a wonderful quilt; I love the border fabric!

                              Wonderful job. You are brave to try curved seams. I am sure your DD will love it.
