Nice work Vivian.  Thanks everyone for your welcome posts.  I checked out all your galleries as suggested and you all have made very beautiful quilts.  I'm going to finish mine this Thurs so will try to post a picture.  I'm  now trying to find an easy pattern to make my first baby quilt.  We've just had to put my mother-in-law into an assisted living facility and are now in the process of cleaning and sorthing out her house.  She had approximately 25 banker-size boxes of sewing and quilting material in every size and color you can imagine so I feel very fortunate to have all this material to use.  Happy quilting everyone.

Barbara, that is Vivian's first quilt, not mine.  She sure did a great job.

Welcome Valerie!  I do remember my 1st quilt and believe it or not...8 years later it is still not finished!!  Oh, I have gone on to finish hundreds of other quilts but my very first quilt is still a UFO!  I am handquilting it and someday it will be finished and I will take a picture then (or maybe as a UFO before completion).  You just had to remind me of my first quilt though and I guess I have to say "thank you" for that? 

You are going to have a great time with this group of great ladies!

Jean, I think you should take a picture of your UFO first quilt as it is right now.  I don't think I'll do any handquilting if it takes 8 yrs!!  ha ha  I bought a new Pfaff quilt expressions 4.0 machine so it'll be doing my quilting.

Oh, it hasn't taken 8 years to hand quilt it as I have hand quilted several others in-between that time!!  I have just never gotten around to finishing that particular one!!  I love hand quilting and would never do it if it took 8 years to complete just one LOL!  I also have a Tin Lizzie longarm so enjoy both machine quilting and hand quilting!  Should have explained myself better.
