    I am new to quilting and this quilt top is my first 'large' size piece. I have only finished piecing the top.

    This is for my mother-in-law.

    I have been sewing for years, just not quilting.

    My high school home economy teacher would be so surprised at my efforts - she told me I should give up sewing and do something I COULD do well!

    Well you certainly are well at quilting. Do you have your next project in mind yet? ;)

    I'm finishing up a couple of table runners...trying to get my mitered corners right. After that I'm going to make some Father's Day lap robes for charity.
