NEW TO THIS SITE AFTER LOOKING AT ALL THE GORGEOUS QUILTS I DRAG OUT MY 18YR OLD HAND SAMPLER (12 OF THEM) HAVE A HARD TIME I JUST DON,T KNOW WHAT TO DO BLOCKS ARE STRETCHING?????
I have gotten all of the fabrics at once for this project. I have decided to enlarge this to a king size quilt. Any suggestions to do this ? My lqs has the fabric line in stock now so I need to pick out the rest of my fabric before she sells out. More blocks added or just borders. Thanks

This is the second one I've done from this pattern. This one is smaller, and crisper, I think. I machine quilted it. Just SITD in the center, and two lines of quilting in the border. This one is going to AAQI, probably in March.

It has taken me some time to come to terms with this new van. I went into the dealership just to look and possibly to trade our 2001 town and country in on a 2006 van.
