    My friend purchased a "quilt" that she found to be far too puffy for her taste, so she asked if I could help flatten it out by top stitching it. This idea failed miserably, so I took it down to the bare bones, removed all the mess inside, put in Warm & Natural batting, reassembled it & SID.
    What a job!

    BUT, the good part is that she GAVE me her 5 year old digital camera in exchange for all my hard work. She knew I had been wanting a digital camera so that I could share my quilting with all you special friends. It gives me such joy to see your work.

    This is a picture of her "quilt", redone:
