    I figured with all of grandmothers or as it seems to turning out great- grandmothers stuff to finish I had better figure out what I was doing LOL. Absolutly no pressure here :shock:
    This is completly hand sewn- except for the outer borders I didnt know how to use a machine until recently- about 6 months now- and I finally finished putting the borders on a couple months ago

    Lovely work, I love the little splashes of plaid in the blocks.
