  1. Roseanne, I think you are way too hard on yourself. The quilt itself is so adorabble with the soft pastel colors, the cute fabric backing and the sweet binding. The quilting, while you have focused on its perceived inaccuracies, is adds so much character and pizazz. Please don’t focus on the few places where it went in directions you would have not chosen. Instead focus on the huge accomplishment you made in creating a work of art. We are human and humans will never achieve perfection. Go with the flow, enjoy the process and pat yourself on the back. You created a very special tiny quilt. 😊♥️♥️

  2. Fantastic job! I played around with my rulers today and it is not easy! You’ve inspired me to keep trying!

    Adorable quilt. And I need to get some rulers and learn myself.

      Hi Chris,
      This is the perfect size for getting a taste at it. So easy to see what you’re doing and where you’re going. ~smile~ Roseanne

  4. I love the quilting on this little quilt. I haven’t used rulers but it’s on my bucket list. First, I need to get better at straight FMQ and then I can get fancier. Well done and a lovely finish for Amy!

      Both FMQ and rulers are on my list to get more comfortable with this year. I hope to quilt the Postcard from Sweden quilt I’m working on by myself, and need to try out some options before I tackle it. Thanks so much for your kind comments! ~smile~ Roseanne

    Now you should try doing that design without the ruler. Try doing it as an uneven square size just fitting in a sq. or rectangle of different sizes as you go across or down. But I like what you did, it is wonderful!! You are right when you veer off- just gently veer back a little at a time:) Have a great weekend.

      Hi Vicki,
      Thanks! If I did it freehand the lines would be great wavy ones instead of straight. I can see what you mean though. I think I’m going to make one more doll quilt so I can practice on HSTs in advance of Postcard. Yes, I need to learn the ‘gently veer back’ technique! ~smile~ Roseanne

      Hi Shannon,
      You are too sweet! Good thing you haven’t looked really closely . . . HAHA! It’s a start anyway and it was fun. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Great start with that ruler.

      Hi Linda,
      Thanks so much! It’s a start, and I did really enjoy it. I can see where it would be great coupled with FMQ. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Good job!

      Hi Ellen,
      I hope you and Linda are well! Thank you so much. I’m trying to expand my horizons . . . ever so slowly. ~smile~ Roseanne
