She also told me that she has never really sewn much. (?!?) What a great way to learn to quilt ~ with sampler blocks and friends! This will truly be a treasure for her, and eventually for her family.

    I freehand quilted some feathered vines and wreaths, roses, grids and curlicues. My girls added the binding for her, then little Mrs. Kaye took it right home and slept under her beautiful creation! I'm so proud of her!

    That is so wonderful! Absolutely beautiful quilt and quilting! Kudos to you for helping her find such a great hobby and social outlet!
