    Hello: I'm Sara from Alpharetta, GA (just north of Atlanta).
    I'm new at quilting. I found your site and started reading it
    every day back in the summer of 2010. I have enjoyed reading
    your advise and have learned from all of you. You give all new
    quilters the courage to try their best.

    So, try I did. Please keep in mind that I have never done any
    quilting. I did lots of sewing when I was young, that's been a while. Back in September I decided to make a small family quilt for my aunt (turned 75 in Dec.). I started with 75 pictures (ended with 220). It was lots of work, lots of planning and long hours. My Aunt really loved the quilt as did all her friends. I told her not to start taking orders because I won't be making another one. I plan on starting a "regular" quilt for my granddaugher before long; just need to find the right pattern since she is 15 (going on 21).

    I'm attaching a picture of the quilt to share with you. I just
    wanted to say "thank you" to the board.
