    Me and my mouth!!! I was chatting with a friend about quilts and I told her I had been playing with some ideas like a friend on this board did (Izy and her baby quilts). I doodled a couple of things outta my head on a scrap piece of paper...one quilt for a boy, one quilt for a girl....her daughter took a peek and said I'll give you $150.00 each to make them for me.

    Now...look what I've got going...not enough time to do them, but here is some of the girl quilt in parts. I have to redo part of her skirt (I don't like it) and I have to redo her eyes...they aren't the same size..she looks demented! I'll be embroidering eyebrows, nose and mouth.

    Too cute! I don't think she looks demented at all. Will be an adorable quilt for a little girl.

    She is not demented at all LOL She is WONDERFUL

    I hope this is extra fabric you really were not going to be using. I know I spent over $130 and thats not including the batting for Davids cousin's quilt. Yes I have some left over but not enough to make another quilt.
    sshhhh I hope he dont read this :shock: I never told him how much I spent LOL
    Its a way to get started then you can start getting your price in line to make some money and not just pay for the fabric.

    How sweet is this? Very creative! Maybe it's because it's just a picture, but I can't see the demented eyes, either!
