    Hi, I'm Karen and I just finished my first quilt 2 days ago and put it in the mail today! I'm NOT a seamstress...having a love/hate relationship with my sewing machine for many years! But all that changed when my son's father-in-law recently suffered a stroke. I was going to make him a prayer shawl but that seemed too "geriatric" for a veteran police officer in Lubbock, Tx. So I decided to quilt him a lap throw...just one small detail...I've never quilted! So I started it with a fairly simple pattern, "Center Court". I was inspired by his love for his favorite college football team, the Texas Tech Red Raiders. I sent the quilt with a photo journal of my journey making his quilt. I must say now, I am hooked! :-)

    Welcome from NM. Your quilt is great, the way you used the Raiders colors in the courthouse block really sets it off! And its your first-bet we'll be seeing lots more from you.

    Welcome! I'm so glad that you are "hooked" now on quilting. I would have never thought this was your first quilt at all! I'm sure this will mean a lot to him. Please do keep quilting!
