Great job! So many colours, love it!
And I agree: those things are just toys that might make it a little bit easier, but they're surely not needed to make a quilt. My first quilt was entirely handsewn because I wanted to get the feeling of how much work it really is to make a quilt like our ancestors did.. You can find it here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=295882.msg3367760#msg3367760

It's the very first sewing machine that I've owned. I bought it when I was 17, It's turning 11 this year! Cheesy

I actually like it better with the rows non-matching.  It gives it more interest that way!  I really like it!  Congrats on a cute quilt!!

I'd love to think that my machine could handle quilting but yeah I don't think it could. I have a lightweight Singer traditional and it's wonderful for everything but thickness. But it's the best I could afford, eventually I'll splurge on a hardcore machine but mine is great for now.

That quilt is amazing, it looks so cheerful that picnics would be instantly 10x more fun.
