    I have twin granddaughters graduating this Sunday and this is the pictures of their quilts I made for them. The green one is Flock of Geese and the pink on is Snail's Trail. They are machine quilted SID method and I'm not very proud of the quilting. I've either got to get better or stick to hand quilting which I like much better. However, for college bound girls I thought the machine quilting would be much more durable and faster as I was on a short time table. Thanks for looking.

    They are both very pretty and should brighten up any dorm room. They will also be able to wrap themselves up in the love from home - which is priceless. Great job!

    Great job! Love them both. I wouldn't worry about the SID. Nobody can see it, and that's the point isn't it! The girls will love them no matter what.

    Your quilts are both lovely. I too like hand quilting better, just wish it wasn't so slow.
