    How thoughtful to make a smaller version to take along. I would not be surprised if it never comes home to he US but is left as a gift for a special individual in Uganda. Have you asked that they bring back or send back some fabric from Uganda? Every time one of my friends of family travel out of the US, I ask for a yard of fabric from that country. Something that is native to that country. Someday I will make an international quilt to document all of the travels of my friend and family. It has been fun and will be a unique quilt.

    Both are beautiful - smaller one is my choice! I really like how the dark blue stands out.

    I can see that a lot of hours went into this quilt. Nice job!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Beautiful quilts! I wish I could quilt like that on my Janome! Did you quilt them whole or in parts and then sew them together?

    It is beautiful. It looks so soothing and one could just crawl under it and feel comforted. Thanks for sharing. Also bless the receivers for what they do.

    Love both of them! Can't believe you did that on a regular sewing machine. They are beautiful.

    DH and I decided on a design. He helped make some card board templates and then he helped trace them onto the quilt top using crayola washable markers. Before you use those make sure you do not iron the marks and be ready to wash the quilt once it is finnished 2 or maybe 3 times to get the marks out. My 15 yr old DD and I spray basted the Calking using 5 large foldable banquet tables to lay it on.
    Then she and my 13 yr old DD put safety pins all around the edge and one pin in each block. I started from the center, just puddled and worked my way out using machinger machine gloves. I set my Janome to mode 2 quilting and just sew away. I no longer drop my feed dogs and that plus aurafil 50 wt thread both in the top and bottom has has helped tremendously.

    Very lovely bear paw design, it came out very good. Looks so striking from a distance, seeing all the design at once!
