    Great job Avianna! I see lots of talent here, and LOVE the colors!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    She has a good eye for color; the quilt is striking and very eye-pleasing. She has some nice touches and overall it's a great quilt. Congratulations to Avianna. Twelve, huh? Her friend is going to be thrilled.

    I was taught by my grandmother as well, and remember so many things we talked about while sewing. Trust me, the time you spent together making this quilt will not only be remembered by you, your GD will treasure it for the rest of her life. She did such a good job!
