Welcome from So. Cal. I am impressed that you were able to convince your mom to take pictures and then cut up the outfits for the fabric. My mother would never agree to do such a thing. It's great to make the quilt out of the clothes. Enjoy!

Welcome from the Lower Peninsula. I am from SW lower Michigan, Guess I am on the cuff of the mitten. Good to have a "Yooper" with us and take a wander about the site There are wonderful teachers on this site, Ask questions and watch for photos and groups that support each other as they work on a common patter or project. Have fun.

Thank you all ..much for the warm welcome. I just work up early to take am hour and a half to practice free-motion quilting.

It's messy and I was really slow, but it's coming along.

I feel very proud of myself for finding this forum!

Welcome from southeast Michigan -- specifically, Plymouth. Don't think we will have the UofM vs. MSU football game this year. Join all of us Michiganers and me with a big "Hello".

Welcome! What a ambitious project you and your sister have undertaken. It will be a great treasure for many years to come. Be sure to cover up with it.

Welcome from Minnesota! My husband went to college at Michigan Tech, so I have been there a few times. Beautiful country.
This is an ambitious start to a quilting career. It sounds as though you may be hooked like the rest of us. We all will love seeing your completed quilt.
