    Here is a lap quilt that is now finished at Midnight Eastern Standard time, that I have been working on since 6pm EST. I think it turned out great:):)

    Henry I love it! Didn't I say your next quilt would be smashing?! Is this one of your recent kit purchases? The bears look familiar....anyway kudos on a spectacular job!!

    Thanks! The center panel is from one of the kits I purchased. The rest of it is from fabric i had here at home already. The white blocks with the bear or tree on it was actually an old bedsheet I had here at home in the closet.

    The center panel comes from the kit but when i opened the kit there were no directions/instructions. So i just decided to do my own thing. :)

    here is another look at it

    Sweet me too. As far as quilting goes. Have you sewn for awhile? I think you had learned from your grandmother, right? It's so great you're keeping that going. And with such beautiful things!

    Well, look at that, Henry. You did a great job. I love the theme and the reuse of fabric/sheets. Way to go!

    I have been sewing since I was about 14 years old. My mother showed me how to sew as did school because I needed to electives to graduate my senior year so I took this class called Teen Living(did a lot of sewing) and Home Ec(cooking). I learned quilting from my grandmother.

    I like your quilt Henry. Nice work. You sure do get a lot of projects completed. Are you keeping any of your quilts or are they going to other people?
