What are you most proud of? I was most proud of my binding; it turned out great! My friend said thay it was her favorite gift and that meant a lot.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I found Machine Quilting the top to be difficult, due to the weight of the project. The weight was effecting my walking foot and some of my stitching is not perfectly even. I am a perfectionist and I had to keep reminding myself that handmade items do not always look perfect and that the flaws add to the charm.

Congratulations! It's a lovely baby gift and I hope you make many more quilts in the future. I sympathize with that self-critical perfectionist in you. Sometimes we can be so hard on ourselves that we hesitate to attempt new things.

And also that very few people ever notice!! I have one friend who looks as if she has a magnifying glass with her when she looks at my stuff. Otherwise, most people sort of "scan" the big picture and enjoy the overall product. I love what you put together in terms of color and in the quilted border.
