    My Beginning off the frame!!!

    This quilt is my first attempt at a quilt!!!It was started before I had a sewing machine so part of it is hand stitched!!!Then my parents bought me a machine and I finished it after a few sewing lessons!!! Then I splurged and bought a long arm and just finished quilting it and I gave it to the lady who is teaching me how to sew!!!!!

    Beautiful quilt and quilting. Your teacher must be amazing and you must be a very fast learner.

    If that's a first, I'm going to try MY first......'course I'll have to forget all those other quilts I've made. Seriously, this is better than some I've seen from quilters with years of experience. Keep up the good work (er, excellent work!)
