When I made this quilt, it was only the second time I had ever machine quilted and it won a Blue Ribbon at the Fair. I was stunned since I felt I had no idea what I was doing at the time. The first quilt I machine quilted was a charity baby quilt for our guild and there was no "pressure" for the quilting to be great so I could "practice". For me it was the perfect way to get started.
I still love this quilt.
