    My First Quilts (Photo Memory Quilts)

    Here are the quilts that I made for my MIL and SIL for Christmas. (barely, lol) I washed them (separately) in cold water with a few color catchers on gentle cycle and dried them in the dryer on air fluff/ no heat setting. They are my first quilts ever, so they are not perfect but I hope they like them and have a blind eye to all the little imperfections I see. I did a stippling on them with my regular sewing machine but hopefully within time I can do some of the beautiful details I see on here that some of you do. Thanks for peeking!

    well, you just know the recipients are going to love those. I particularly like the second one. The stars are great frames.
