    I think this might be the first quilt a friend made. She is new to quilting. It was a mystery quilt from last year's retreat that she attended and I help put on every year. I use a Tin Lizzie and this time I used a pantograph.

    First quilt? She's a definite natural! And your quilting is a beautiful complement to her quilt. Nice work! :)
