    I've finished my mother's quilt, finally. It's hard to see, but I found a great climbing rose pattern for the border. The quilt is crinkly 'cause I just washed it.

    Dad's top is finished, all I have to do now is the quilting and we'll be good to go.

    Nice job and great colors! Did you quilt them on your sewing machine? If you did, you certainly are brave! I'm afraid to quilt a potholder with anything other than diagonols, lol.

    Yes I did. I started out doing just in the ditch, then straight line, now have been trying free motion with a pattern. I have a frame that I bought second hand from a lady, and I'm going to experiment with that next. practice, practice, practice, that's the only thing that helps me. Believe me, there are lots and lots of 'boo boo's ....

    Those are beautiful quilts. What a great job you're doing with the quilting too. Can I be your mom too? I need more nice snuggly quilts. It's getting cold here :mrgreen: :)
