i really like the fabrics you used - and you did a great job. i would've had no idea you were a beginner if you hadn't said anything.

that is a great quilt, go ahead and take your credit  Wink
i think quilting seems really imposing to people but it doesn't have to be. sure there are really complicated blocks out there and really intricate designs to use in the actual quilting, but you also can still make beautiful things with more basic steps like the block you used and good ol stitching in the ditch. having really complimentary colors or a pleasing overall design can be done without some fancy techniques. but stick with it, you did a very nice job!

Thank you everyone for the wonderful compliments, encouragement and suggestions!!  Grin I love this forum. People are so dang NICE! I have spent several nights in a row staying up WAY too late looking at all of the amazing things people have created. It is inspiring to say the least.

Y'all rock! (even if rock is dead) heehee

That quilt looks wonderful!

I've been quilting for a few years but I had never tried this stack and wack method until I made the April square in the Quilt Block of the Month Quilt Along.  In fact, McJulie-O posted the exact squares we made:

Try this next: Something a little similar but a little more advanced

I certainly didn't find it easy and I'm amazed that's what you would do for a first quilt  Smiley
