    I have the Alabama top almost completed and ready to start the Auburn. I can post a pic if anyone is interested. Any suggestions?

    Your quilt would make one of my sons very happy!!! lol I don't expect mine to be as great as yours. I like the way you put the small square insets. Here's my Alabama. I plan a row at the bottom identical to the top row except Bear's hat will be facing the other direction.

    I have an embroidery machine with a small stitching area and used it to applique the letters on my Alabama quilt (pic posted earlier).

    Thanks for your compliments. Maybe one day I will finish the top ... and the quilting??? lol I have one small "A" to put the bias tape on and then add that row. I keep getting distracted with other projects. Does that ever happen to anyone else? lol

    I plan to quilt close to the big "A" in the center and do echo quilting about 1" or so throughout the white. Any suggestions?
