    my first cutwork attempt, thanks to grammatjr for helping!

    I have been afraid to try this, but finally got the nerve. I'm happy with how it came out. This will be part of a comfort quilt for a 13 yr old boy who lost his dad. I showed the quilt I made his sister recently.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Jeanne, visit grammatjr here on the board, she has written a book about this process, and has a lot of info on her blog. I think she had a tutorial at one time, but not sure if it's still there. The book is on CD only but I found it very helpful and easy to follow. It has lots of patterns plus directions for using your own patterns like I did here.

    You can use photographs, but I used a coloring book drawing for this particular image.

    This is stunning! Have only seen cut work in doilies, table cloths and napkins.
