Getting started

I have decided to concentrate on easy and quick projects to start with. Pillows and place mats seemed a good choice. I´d like to share them with you.

Of course I had to get started with the Ohio Star, but later realized I didn´t get it quite right...
This project also showed me how difficult it is to put colors together for a nice effect! Too much pink, I think. There is no visual balance.

Now, the pillow I´ve made to Clara, a little baby girl coming up in January.
I seem to insist on pink and blue!

And these were the place mats I´ve got done, based on Art to Heart´s angels patterns.

All right! I have a lot to learn from you, so, be nice to me and say a word or two of encouragement (or not - it will do me good anyways) as you stop by...

I mean to go on learning how to quilt.  I´ll need help and support to make me feel part of a group of people with a passion in common.

Tks in advance!
