    Backed, quilted and bound - first quilt complete!

    This is my first completed quilt - hand-stitched top and machine quilted! (finished size is 70" by 104")

    Boy have a learnt a lot .. if only how much more I have to learn!

    1 Stitch in the ditch sounds easier than it is!
    2 Straight edges on borders will lead to straight binding!
    3 Mitre corners need more practise!
    4 most importantly when you are new to quilting choose a smaller project - there is so much fabric to get through the machine

    Now, what should I make next!

            Elaine, me thinks thoust doest tell stories . . .

            So hard to believe that you tackled that for your first quilt! I give you a thousand first-place blue ribbons. It is spectacular. Don't hurt your shoulder, but you should definitely pat yourself on the back. Keep up the good work.

                Wow! I'm a newbie too & I'm so impressed! Great Job! My Quilting instructor insisted that I start on a Baby Quilt, and I got it---learned all the same lessons.
                Put those 1st Place blue ribbons on your forehead an wear them proudly!

                  Good job!

                  I bet whatever you choose to do next it isn't hexagons. That is a LOT of hand stitching.

                  T - is it TRUE?
                  H - is it HELPFUL?
                  I - is it INSPIRING?
                  N - is it NECESSARY?
                  K - is it KIND?

                    Thanks for the ribbons and the pat on the back!

                    It really is true this is the first quilt that I have done, I've done other textile crafts - cross stitch, embroidery, knitting but never (until now) any quilts.

                        Wow! That's a lotta work! It looks amazing!
                        If at first you DO succeed, try not to look so surprised.

                            If that is your FIRST quilt, I cannot imagine what you will stitch up in a few months ! Your workmanship inspires me .
