OH MY GOSH I am soooo excited and so proud of myself it isnt even funny.
I am making a pay it forward to one of the board members here and so I am unable to post a picture of it or say much about it and so I am so sorry. I attempted to hand quilt a part of it or I think thats what it is called. Going around a design with a needle and quilting thread.
Well that wasn't working for me as I am visually handicapped and it wasnt very good so I ripped that out and luckily it was only about 2 inches so it wasn't too bad. So then, I got this great big idea in my head, I am going to see if I can do a fancy stitch around the areas that I was originally going to do by hand. AND IT WORKED. And it looks so cool. And I knowwwwwwww she will just love it. I can't wait to finish it and send it to her.... but anyways, I think that its called Machine quilting.
