THANKS to ALL of you who commented ideas for this fabric that I just Love! Well here is what I am leaning towards especially now that I cut some pieces. I think it will take some time to
I am not familiar with the Quilting Board other than to read it! I enjoy all the pictures and comments. A day or two ago I saw a link in one of the comments about how to make a fleece wrap for nursing homes, etc. I thought I would be able to find it easily but haven't been able to.
I know from reading that all of you are very good at finding just what each other are looking for so I am trusting someone will come up with the site for me. Thanks in advance.

Once you get going with it, it's actually pretty easy, but if you get confused, don't hesitate to ask me in a PM.
1. Get your sweatshirt. Any color that will compliment the colors that you are going to use. I have a gray one because that's all I had. This one is going to be mine and I really don't care if the gray doesn't match all that well.
Make sure the sweatshirt is a bit bigger for you. You really don't want your jacket

And she still brings me a quilt about every month. I wish I had her energy. We chose Hobbs 80/20 batting and a gold thread to quilt feathers, Terry Twist and piano keys, some stippling and SID on her beautiful top. What an inspiration

Lost power when the storms blew through, but up and going again. Have more pieces traced and more of them cut out and bagged. Ran out looking for freezer paper for the larger pieces and finally found some at the third grocery store I went to. WalMart didn't have any which surprised me. Also picked up more gallon baggies for my pieces. The freezer paper will be traced with the large pieces, trimmed and ironed onto the fabric. Then I cut out the pieces and add a thin line of glue around the edge before

There are so many things- in addition to those mentioned I saw
a teddy bear and a doll.

I have snapdragons, hollyhocks, sunflowers, cosmos, 3 kinds of peppers, carrots, beans, tomatoes etc. Now to trace the larger pieces and get them ready to fuse.The prep work
