    Tru can quilt, just can't put pictures in the computer !!!!!!!!!

    So her pictures traveled from Ohio to NJ and then all over the world for you to view.....

    There were some problems doing this pillow as it was knit fabric and she didn't have a stabilizer.

    Tru said these fabrics are all from the recipient's late grandmother...and there are knits, fleece, velours and terry....so you can just imagine what Tru was murmuring & mumbling while stitching ..but it sure turned out pretty.

    Tru, send along the pics of the other items as you finish them.
    We want to see them all.

    Ladies, that's a blue garter hanging on the upper left hand corner of the pillow. What's a bride with out a garter???

    Tru's pillow and bridal garter......

    Thanks MJ for posting the pic. It was taken with a cell phone so it isn't the best pic in the world. It was a pain in the butt using fabric that stretch. The pillow is far from perfect however the garter did come out perfect. It will be a surprise for my BFF and her DD as the fabric was sent for me to make a memory quilt for my BFF however un be know to BFF I used some for the pillow and garter as a shower gift. By the time I finish making the memory quilt with the same knit fabric I will probably have all my hair pulled out from frustration. grrrrrrr knits are a bi*ch!!!!!!!!!!!
