    My turn to share!

    Hi! I have been stalking this messge board for a LONG time and thought it was about time that I share a few of my pics! About 20 years ago, I took a quilting class. We made sampler blocks, but even tho, I loved the whole process, I never finished the quilt. (Life just got too busy). About 2 years ago, I decided to finish that quilt and have been piecing (and stalking this board) ever since. I have learned SOOOOO much from all of you and many of my quilts have been inspired by you! THANK YOU!

    This is the sampler quilt I made. I havent learned how to free hand quilt yet. I am terrified I will ruin a top if I try! So until I get my nerve up to try, I send my tops to Rhonda Dranter in Illinois. Even after I learn SOMEDAY, I will still send my favorite quilts to her...everything she does is perfect and beautiful! Name:  IMG_2454.jpg

    That lovely quilt must surely inspire you to make more. It is beautiful. I am not getting along with free motion quilting very well at all and can understand your nervousness. However I like traditional straight line quilting and like the results very much. Good luck with the FMQ.
