    Hi again. These are pictures of my 3rd project. I did this one all by myself and made my own pattern, which I actually messed up about half way through the quilt. :lol: My friend Karla gave me a box of scrap material from a sewing factory so I decided to make her a quilt/throw out of it. (Plus a pillow to match, of course!)

    It finished at 54" x 62". If you look closely you'll see where I managed to turn one of my rows around backwards while sewing the strips together. All my white and red rows came out perfect but my light and dark blue rows got mixed around. :oops: I have lights and darks in the same rows.

    Karla loved it anyways and said it gave it "Class". Then I made her a pillow to go with it.

    What a beautiful quilt and pillow, don't worry about the mistake, just tell everyone that was planned. We're our hardest critics. Your DF and her DH will cherish this wonderful gift.

    Yes! I take pictures of everything I make, and lots of them. When I get them developed, I put them in my Special picture albums that I keep in my sewing room. I always buy the type like in these pictures with the space between the pictures, so I can write about the pictures. I do lots of crafts (knit, crochet, plastic canvas, etc. etc.), and I started years ago to do this.
    It is a good way to remember, years later, what you did, for who, how big, whatever. I also have a calendar to write on until I get my pictures developed, so I don't forget dates.
    Plus when I save pictures, I name and date them. That way when I get the pictures, I can copy dates off the computer or calendar.

    I think it's beautiful. You did a wonderful job. I'm glad Karla loved it. I do too.
