    Finished a Wall hanging for me.

    I tried to load pictures that were transferred from my iphone, wouldn't work so took this with my computer camera and it's certainly NOT the best. I saw this cross on another post and thought I'd try it. I had no pattern. FMQting done on my Singer 301 ( and not very good) but it's practice. Thanks for looking.

    Lovely quilt and quilting. I learned something yesterday at my knit group. When you make a mistake in your project, You call it the Amish stitch. I was told that when the Amish made quilts there would always be a mistake added to keep them humble and in order to not have a perfect project to boast about. I always include an amish stitch in all my works now.

    Like the idea that you did it without a pattern. Sounds like something I would do. I have yet to try my 301 for quilting. Hear it's hot down your way. Still cool here in Ontario.
    I can understand the photo problem but we can still see it.
