    Every month my Guild has a "Block of the Month". You are allowed to bring in up to 3 blocks to enter the drawing. I won the December drawing and made this quilt. I put a fleece blanket I found at the Thrift Shop on the back without batting.

    9 of the 14 blocks I won

    Thank you. Last summer I purchased a used Pfaff Hobby 1200 GrandQuilter with a 10 foot table. It also has a shelf for pantographs. The one I used for this quilt is my favorite (not that I have very many). But for a new quilter it is great. You don't really have to worry about staying on the lines. So, probably every quilt you see from me is going to have this same quilting pattern on it. I don't even attempt to do free-hand quilting yet.

    I never though to back with fleece only. I love it! Will have to try that as I love cuddly quilts.

    Nice quilt and a great idea to use a thrift store find. They go well together. I love the border with th peppermints. Great job.
