I just took a course on quilting big quilts on a small machine...anyone else done this? It would save me some money if I could do this...especially since I have been busy REALLY getting quilt tops done the past 2 years!
I have a bunch of odds and ends blocks...thinking of making some small quilts to donate...does anyone do this or can give me information on where to start here?

Daymon is the blonde twin and he is the one that fell off his bike and had to stay in the hospital over night recently. As you can see he is just fine again. You can see his pic in the post below this one.
the boys will be 9 this next November. I can't believe how fast time flies and how much they grow up over night!
