    My 1st BOM

    I'm sharing my completed BOM called Freedom Bound, which everyone said I was crazy to attempt as a new quilter...I thought I'd learn several techniques in one quilt so I went for it. It was a difficult project but got easier by the 12th month so I'm glad I challenged myself. Hopefully the picture displays ok for you to see since I'm testing posting pics with this one.. Also sharing an appliqué project I designed from a water color painting I saw. I love appliquing...

    These projects are done beautifully. That quilt turned out great. The fun thing about finished a complex project is that you aren't afraid of the next one. Job well done. Glad you enjoyed the process.

    I also love appliqué and your pillow is beautiful. You did so good on your BOM! No one would think you are a beginner and now you will have to say you are an experient quilter. Keep up the good work!
