I love it!!
Stunning Quilt!!Fantastic work done!!!
Well done. Amazing first effort.
Hi Pam, first of all let me congratulate you on your "firsts". It has turned out so beautiful. Your granddaughter will absolutely love it. Secondly, I love the pink sashing on each design and it's wonderful to see all the colours involved, plus the different fabric choices, well done. Including the primary colours makes the quilt 'pop'
I still haven't done a quilt as you go quilt and I've been making them for years! Love Chris
Thank you Chris. I made it a quilt-as-you-go since I do not have a long arm nor did I want to pay to have it quilted with a long arm. The quilting in the hoop was pretty easy but it did take time to be sure the designs were aligned in the hoop. The quilting on the sashing is with a decorative stitch, Putting the whole thing together was not as easy as I thought it would be. The first three sections went together very smoothly but the bigger it became harder it was to work with. But knowing that, another quilt as you go is in the planning stage.
Well done. I have several quilts started, but only a few completed and they were done years ago by hand.
Thank you. Jump right in and see what it will take to finish. It is really satisfying to finally finish a project that was started years ago. I had one unfinished for 30 years, started it summer of 1987 finished it summer 2017.
What a bright and happy looking quilt! Love your ballerinas too! Are your ballerinas from Cute? Good job!
Thank you. The ballerinas are not from Cute. The redwork ballerinas and the colorful ballerinas came from different sites. Let me know if you want to know the sites and I will send a personal message.
What a cheerful quilt. All of your first attempts were successful and also a wonderful way to use left overs. Well done.
Thank you. I did use some left overs but most of it is from fabric I had by buying a yard at a time here and there, therefore creating more left overs than was used.
It certainly turned out well. I love it!
That's so lovely!
OK, I put a comment on back pict before seeing the front and I have to say 'I didnot say enough' . Absolutely love your color choices (I also am color challenged when it comes to mix and match) you did a great job on it as well as the color and fabric you used on the rest of the quilt. It is such a happy quilt.
Thank you. I also think it is a happy quilt. I hope my granddaughter will think that way too.
No worry there, She most definitely will love it.
It turned out beautifully--and perfect, too.
Thank you!! Far from perfect just don't look too close or change your glasses there are lots of flaws including two places that I had to repair fabric, one is not very noticeable, the other hooping to cover it with the label.
So cute...this will make someone very happy!
Very nice quilt. Thank you for sharing Happy Stitching :-)
I am happy to share. Thank you
What a beautiful quilt! I'd say it is worth every minute it took as well as the time, effort and all of the decisions to make it.
One decision that probably comes easily to most people but not to myself, is choosing thread color. I spent a bunch of time just choosing thread. Thank you for your comment.
Thank you, I am glad you like it.
Thank you and thank you for looking.
The ballerinas are darling. You have done a great job on this quilt of firsts.
Thank you. I learned a lot on this project.
Oh, I love it - the colors are wonderful and you can tell it too some work and patience went into making this - just lovely!
I spent a few days choosing the brightest fabrics from my stash, Thank you for your kind words
