    I am so excited......I finished my very first quilt. Not fancy by any means but it is just the beginning. When I started sewing all those little hexagons I planned on doing a queen size but decided I probably wouldn't live long enough to make that many. So, it ended up being a baby quilt for my nephews new baby. I appliqued the rosettes on to 12 inch squares and then did machine stitching as I went along. I admire you ladies who can do that much hand sewing. I have arthritis in my hands so they start hurting after awhile. Anyway, hope you all are enjoying your weekend.

    :)
