    I made this for a very unique friend of mine. She loves tie dye. My mom helped me, we didn't have a pattern, we just winged it. When we were buying the fabric my mom was thinking "oh my, I don't know how this is going to look. But we both ended up very happy with it. I did all the work myself with my mom instructing, except we sewed on the binding together.

    I love it. You chose some beautiful, vibrant colors and they look so good together.

    So, what's next? :lol:

    My mom worried that if she put it on her bed that it would keep her awake at night! LOL. But right now I have a pink, yellow and blue rail fence quilt loaded in my long arm. I'm a little bit afraid to start sewing...

    Home run for your first quilt!!! Beautiful and bright- and the bonus of working with your mom is priceless. Now we are all excited to see what wonderful creation will be your 2nd quilt. :):):)

    Since I made this, I temporarily drifed in a different direction. I made my granddaughter a flanel nightgown with lace and ruffles. She's three and she calls it her "lady." She was a little on the tomboy side until I gave her that, now she's a princess. So I have been sewing pj's for her. But I think she has enough, so back to quilting.

    My second quilt isn't near as fun looking as the first. It's more baby colors. But I think my little GD Lorah Poo will like it for cuddling up on the couch to watch movies.

    I love this forum. Thank you all for the compliments.

    One of my other passions is cooking. On the cooking forum I go on (only occasionally now) I can post something and nobody ever replies to it.

    Here, I love going into the "pictures" and seeing what everyone has done, and looking to see if I would know how to do it. And I'm always amazed at the beautiful colors people pick. I think I'm among my own here with people that are as in awe of what can be done with fabric as I am.

    Thank you all again.

    Maggie
