My first attempt at Quilting

Well I have finally sewn the binding on the quilt that was my first attempt at quilting on a friend's machine. From a distance it looks OK, but "oh boy" it is uneven stitching! This is the front view......

and here is the back view................
The writing on it says "It's a Girl"... so it will have to go to a baby girl. It is made up of flannel material, but I would say it is more "flannelet" than flannel as it is thinner than the other flannel I have bought at quilt shops. The size is 42" square. I think I will try to sell it on eBay, but warn the bidders that it isn't quilted by an experienced quilter!!! (Far from it! LOL!).
I don't think I will quilt the green bear quilt top next, as I want it to be done nicer... so I thought I would make up another quilt top in rows and teach myself to quilt between the lines... a bit like going back to school.
On another note... Don't forget to leave a comment on the "Giveaway" (previous entry) to be in the running for one of my tea towels.
Until next post...
