    MJ was kind enough to post pictures of my quilt.

    We are traditional Catholics and this is a baby quilt top for a family friend.

    Sorry about the wrinkles it has not been ironed so the seams don't look straight, but they are. It is hand pieced and will be hand quilted.

    Thank you for your kind words, I do love the fabric.

    For those who wonder if I just hang out on the board with nothing to do, I do quilt, I just can't post pictures. I am looking forward to quilting it. Tomorrrow I will sandwich it and then quilt away.

    Love the quilt. Where did you get the fabric with those pictures? I would love to make some for our group at church to make and sell.

    Since I bought it about 8 months ago I have searched high and low for it. It is not to be found anyplace. I have a little over a yard left that I hope to use in a quilt if I ever have a grandchild. I love the fabric and wish I could find more. It seems religious fabric is hard to come by. I would have thought with people making pray quilts it wouldn't be that hard I was wrong.

    My WIP is a St Francis quilt for my son who attends Franciscan University.........so stay tuned.
