Just finished the top of my very 1st quilt. It is going to be my grandsons Christmas present. They say you learn from your mistakes; boy did I learn ALOT! My daughter said I spent more time taking stitches out than I did sewing them! I think she's right.

Great one. I have a stack of sew outs of Cars, but that's not at the top of my list. I like the sashing and corner squares. Gives a little zing.

Thank you all for your nice comments. I am now inspired to do one for the rest of my grandchildren (6)! Ah, but Christmas is so close. I've already started 2 of them, but don't know if I will have the time. Especially with my youngest GS turning 1 next month. I've been busy sewing for the party! I also have another grandchild due in April. A Grandmas job is never done.

I can see this was a lot of work and you did a great job! Don't forget to sew a label on the back with your name, who you made it for and the date.
