    Quilt of the Week - what an honor...

    Thanks to Erstan947 for letting me know my quilt is featured this week. I know that there is such a place, but am always in too much of a hurry to get to the posts to scroll far enough down to view the Quilt of the Week. For those that don't know, it is on the Home page to the right http://www.quiltingboard.com/forum.php

    This quilt was originally posted here http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...d-t123410.html It was a lot of fun to do. I have two other DGKs out of state and have been begging for their handprints for a year! I'd love to do a wall-hanging for myself with all 6 of the hands on it. If you have the hand outlines, it really works up fast, so not too late for a gift for this Sunday [Mother's Day in the USA].

    ​Congratulations! I loved tracing little handprints. They grow so fast and I tear up when I look at my little handprints that I have of my grown children. I've never transferred them to fabric but it's a great idea.

    Congratulations! I saw the POTW and clicked on it to see the whole quilt. A great memory quilt. Send an e-mail to the other family about this honor and maybe they will get those hands to you.

    I was looking at it in the picture section yesterday, saw your quilt and loved it! When I clicked "Home" to check out other areas of the board, your quilt was posted on the right side of the page as quilt of the week. I thought, "Isn't that cool!" Congratulations!!!

    Congratulations! I didn't know there was a quilt of the week spot here. I seldom look at the ads or text on the page around the posts. It's like vision white noise to me.
    Got fabric?

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.
