    My Autumn Quilt

    I decided to make a quilt just for me. I go to a class at our senior center and this is the pattern they were doing. I didn't have a lot of material at home that inspired me until we did an Autumn swap. I used the materials from that swap. Now I just have to quilt it. I quilt by hand because I can't afford to pay someone to do it. One of the downfalls of being retired and on a limited budget. But I do have more time so I can work on it. (smile)

    That is a show stopper. I love it sew much. Can't wait to see how you quilt it.
    And you deserve it for sure.

    That is an awesome quilt. It is a great pattern and the colors are beautiful. I like the 'vine' design...it really adds to the overall look. I give it an A+.

    Wow! Your quilt is truly beautiful and when you complete your hand quilting it will be truly a work of art! Enjoy.
    Someday, I hope to be competent enough to build such a beautiful work of art!
