I finished Micha's quilt this morning and I am quite pleased with it. It is the first one that I have done without any kind of pattern. My objective was to try as many kinds of stars as I could and to use Tonya's wonky letters, so even if it didn't turn out all that well I would have been satisfied.
Next weekend is our local quilt show so I am getting a few quilts ready for that. I got six entry forms but I'm not sure if I will put in that many. It's a bit intimidating putting up all your mistakes for the world to see. I live in an area of expert quilters too so it's even more scary. I put my first big quilt in last year but I didn't know enough technically to see half of my mistakes. I know better this year but hey, it's the art that I'm interested in anyway!

Go for it. We all start somewhere, even the experts. I find the quilts we make, which I call utility quitls, get more love. They are not on a shelf somewhere for fear they might get dirty and used. Nice quilt.

Thanks for the encouragement, Dot. I needed that. I do find that the better the quilter, the more encouraging they are. (I guess that makes you a great quilter!)

Hurrah! You finished the quilt and it looks wonderful. Just remember you're putting quilts into the show to share with others, not to meet someone else's idea of perfection.
