I hope this is the right place to show it. Thank you very much for your warm welcome aboard.
This is my first attemp to make a quilt 30 years ago when I was in college. The proyect was bigger but it went UFO several month later ..... (too much study and... partys I think ).
Two years ago I rescued it from my mom's attic, I re-learned to crochet and I put together the blocks already done and voila! half of the UFO finished. The other half is raw fabric . and orphan blocks thus this tutorial.


The size is: 43" x 64"


As I am a little english challeged LOL! I think is better I show the process by pictures instead only words!!

    I love it! I will put this on my to do list. One question though. How do you keep the batting from moving?
