Well, I’m not 100% happy but I’m not unhappy with this either. The frond like feather is a little threadier in some places than I’d like but overall I think it’s pretty good for a first attempt. All the photos should enlarge when you click them.
One thing I always struggle with is the corners of my borders, on this quilt one turned out good (below) 2 aren’t bad, and 1 isn’t all that great. Notice I’m only showing the good one!
Noone could complain about that quilting!! Lovely.>Enjoy your sons!!
I think it looks great.
Mary>>Your quilt is so amazing… I like so much of your work !>Congratulations !>Kisses from Brazil >Helena
Looking at your quilting makes me ambitious to go beyond meanders and loops. Yours are gorgeous.
Fabulous, Mary! Diane Gaudynski suggests doing four corners differently — on purpose — for the sole purpose of avoiding that whole “matching” saga. Well done!!!
I love your quilting!! I think it turned out great :o)
I really like the frond feathers, adds a new twist!
I like it!
The curves look very smooth…mine look like broken teeth! Don’t be too hard on yourself…I so like Darcie’s pass along about having 4 different corners!
I agree, you’re being much too hard on yourself. I think you did a GREAT job! I wish my quilting looked half as good.
*Very* nice, Mary!>And I like Darcie’s quoted suggestion of doing each corner differently. I’m tucking that idea away for the near future!>Have a nice visit with your boys!
look at you stretching your skillset and coming out a winner! the two patterns you chose compliment eachother and the quilt nicely.
Well now, that turned out great! You worry for nothing.
Mary, that is AMAZING!!!!!
I think your quilting is great!
I think it looks great and I absolutely LOVE the idea of four different corners! You rock, Mary!>>Flatlander (Linda)
I think it’s wonderful! You are so talented Mary! I love to see what you have done with your quilting. Inspiring!
Yes, and I really like it up against the two different colors. It really shows how varied the look can be. Mary, you gotta dig how fun this is! Possibilities.
Very nice Mary!!

I can’t believe this is all free hand! It is beautiful and looks just perfect!
I love the swirls. It’s so whimsical. I finished my Nines and Vines quilt top. Come have a look. Done is good
Wow – I am impressed! Great job!
Mary->what group do you swap postcards with? I just found one on swap-bot and I think it would be fun to do, but if I could join the same one that you are in then I might end up with some of your beautiful work one day!>Cary
Love that thread on that quilt and your quilting–FREE HAND–is awesome!
You are doing great! I still struggle with corners, too.
