    Hi all -- Linda from Houston, Texas again! When I first introduced myself I mentioned my first quilt I did for a school art project. Well, I've updated my profile/avatar with a pic of it. If I did it right ... it should show here, I guess! It's largely appliqued with the kids artwork using lots of iridescent threads, even used peacock feathers for some grass areas and I machine quilted in various patterns to create different textures, etc.-really hard to see in pic- but, for my first quilt experience-I think it came out pretty well. Now I'm ready to try a more traditional block-style quilt - but modernized for the teenage daughter's room! Looking for patterns or maybe an online (free?) software to create a pattern -- Any ideas are welcome! Thanks again for the warm welcome from everyone!

    Thx so much...it was fun to do. One thing I'd like to share for others ideas, on the left side tree is a hole in the tree with a snake coming out. This snake was drawn as a flat circle coiled up with no space between the coils..what to do?I fabric backed it so I could cut the coil apart & then stuffed a pipe cleaner inside to make it 3 dimensional ...u can't tell in pic but it coils/springs out from the tree hole...just an idea I had probably at 2 am ...everyone loved it! What we won't do for our kids :)
