    Monica;
    Beautiful quilts and love the sock. You have been busy and thanks for your kind words about the butterfly quilt.

    Monica, great quilts and runner. I also like the sock. I make knitted socks too. It is nice to do something different once in a while! I like to use those socks to run around in when I am in Strip Club or somewhere sewing with my shoe off!

    Thanks! I have made socks from the top down, but never a sock from the toe up. I like the toe up method!
    Once I get my latest quilt done, I'll post that. I won a bag of ties at one of Cathy's TOGAs. Hopefully after the first of the year I can get to making them into a quilt. I found a pretty tie quilt on a google search that I will be copying.

    Thank you all - Chris, Miriam, Cindy, Monica, and Skip!

    Monica, no that quilt was a pain to make! One of the hardest strip quilts I have made because that stonehedge fabric is very stretchy and it frays really bad! There were several of us who did that quilt, but I don't think anyone else finished it because of the distortion from the fabric stretching and fraying down to the seam! I used a lot of Fray Check on my seams, which I have never had to do before while piecing a top, and I stay stitched an 1/8" around the entire quilt top before quilting it. DH really likes it and wants me to keep it! After all the trouble it caused me - I think I will keep this one!

    Nancy
