After finishing my first quilt top (sampler), with the help of my cousin and her mother, my aunt Deva, I hand quilted about 3 feet of thread, looked at it(horrible) and ripped it all back out. It was suggested I find someone to quilt it for me, however, that ran aground with my desire to finish. To make a long story short, I found a 3yr old TinLizzie and am quite excited about finishing my project myself completely. I'll post a picture when I'm done with it.
Looking forward to following and learning from some of you in this new and beautiful hobby.
