    5 hour quilt my foot lol

    My oldest son is 21 yoa and is special needs, and he wanted to make something special for his teachers. So we picked Take 5 quilt pattern and hit the store for fabric. He did great picking out patterns and solid colors for 2 quilts for both teachers. I cut the fabric and we both sat at different sewing machines and went to town. He did such a great job. I did the quilting and the binding. But he did all the rest. The teachers loved the quilts so much and sad that he will not be in the class with them next year. Thanks for looking. Bobbi

    The quilt is beautiful.

    Pictures are done with attachments. You choose your file and then have to click on upload. You will see the numbers three lines below when they are uploaded. it takes a minute to do it. After you type in with your title and about your quilt, the area where you do your attachment (photo) is below that box and you have to scroll down. When you have uploaded them, scroll down some more to click on the button that confirms that you are done. Dang can't think what that is called. But even if you forget it you can add a photo by clicking on "edit". Again you have to scroll down to the place where attachments go in. Yup I know that from personal experience of forgetting the photo.

    I am glad i got to see your quilt. it took me a long time to get up the courage to post a new thread after they changed the format, but it has gotten easier as I have learned the new terms and done it a few times.
