    Great job Amanda! Can't wait to see the quilt you make and the fabric you choose.

    Go Girl!!! Now isn't that better than TV!

    Thank you everyone! I got so excited I forgot to mention where we got the pattern!!! Thanks for reminding me. Yes, it's the Rolled Pillowcase pattern by Jeanne M. Butter at www.rainydayquiltschool.com. The pattern was interesting!!!! I thought she was crazy then VOILA, there's a pillowcase! LOL

    Throw the TV out the window when she comes. Take her shopping for fabric--then she'll be hooked and gone. :lol:

    You are one fabulous grandma!

    Tell Amanda that we all support her. She did a great job on the pillowcases. Can't wait to see the quilt this summer.
