Lexi, I don't think any of us would mind if you put the large pictures, or even the thumbnails in your post--you can chose either of those by going to the pictures and selecting either option underneath, like this:

Thumbnail--remove the dashes (-) on either end of the code

Full size, same procedure as above

"Star Flimsy" is my favorite--I really like how the white sashing shows up in the thumbnail!

Those are all very pretty.  I like the star one a lot, the contrasts are wonderful.  I'm also impressed with your seam matching skills.  My first quilts are not that fantastic to say the least.  Great job!

Very nice! I agree with Linnybelle... my first quilts were no where near this nice. Pleasing color choices, precise piecing, super, super job!
You should be very proud.

Thanks Distracting 1 and DaisyAlly. All of the nice comments make me glad I started this very addictive hobby(?) I really enjoy the challenge, not to mention the fact that I hate to waste anything and this is going to help a lot in that area.
