What are you most proud of? Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? I love learning new skills. Thank you, Laura!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I made a BIG mistake with this one. I trimmed the block too close to the flowers and leaves, which meant that the binding didn't look as good as it might have. Don't use scissors when you are tired!

You may think you made a mistake, but it sure looks great to me. I have to get to work on this course.

There's no such thing as a "mistake" in quilting! Just think of it as a creative opportunity! This is lovely and makes a wonderful partner for your first project. I specially like the way you've dyed the background with more than one colour - very clever!

Once making mistake, sewers can be truly creative to fix something like you did! Amazing work! Did you use the special shape wavy scissor to cut the wavy fabric as binding?

If the ridge bothers you, its a great opportunity to add some embroidery, feather stitch, for instance (or other ideas, like fusing little triangles or other shapes randomly) that break up the plain of the ridge. It will disappear like magic. To me, it looks perfect just like it is.

Who says old dogs can't learn new tricks. I was 67 when I started quilting and am still learning. Congrats this is a lovely wall hanging. Keep it up. Old dog, huh.
