Thank you for your compliments on the graduation quilt, but if you saw it up close you would see LOTS of bad corners! I made my strips and then started cutting the triangles in a class. But I forgot my own ruler! When I got home I used a different one and the triangles came out slightly different! I had a teacher who used to say "If you can't see it from the back of a galloping horse, it's okay!" This quilt is one of those! Keep working on your quilting and you'll get better all the time. I have only been quilting about 8 years and I still love to take classes, even though I sometimes teach. It's a great thing to do, I just wish I didn't have to work all day! So many quilts, so little time!
Thank you so much, Donna, for your sweet compliments! I really enjoy making quilts and wish I had more time to do so. I am praying for something to open up so that I can make a career out of something to do with quilting - but without losing that passion for it! I am trying to learn how to do binding totally by machine. I see you are in central GA - I am north of Atlanta up near the Mall of Georgia. We moved here from California just over 4 years ago. It's interesting that you've taught yourself to quilt! I learned a couple techniques in the beginning, but have done a lot of it myself just by watching quilting shows, looking in books, or on the internet. I do have a step-aunt who is an avid quilter, so I am always asking her input or advice. I never would have thought I would love fabric so much! =D
