    Hi everyone, hope you enjoy these pics. I am new to quilting and this is my first machine quilt. I even got brave and revised the pattern a little as you will see. I was very proud of the points and how they all matched perfect as well. I have done a couple hand made quilts before the machine but what I call "cheating quilts"! Just bougnt material with squares or designs and put a backing on them and they looked like a full designed quilt......lol. Hope you all enjoy my GD's quilt.

    Pattern with 10" Layer Cake Squares I worked with, actually found the Layer Cake Squares before the pattern, could not believe it!!

    Thanks for the post. Can you tell me why my pics are not listed under Pictures and listed under Topic Log, it says Pictures but I cannot find it listed under pictures, only Topic Log. Can I get it listed under pictures without redoing it, thanks for any help
