    My first paying quilt

    Hi all, I just wanted to see what you all through of my first quilt done from scratch for my first paying customer.
    This quilt is 92" X 92". I still have to do the hand work on the binding, its just off the frame. I have several pictures and hope that I can post them right.
    Thanks for looking,
    Cathy

    Well done!! I'm sure your customer will be thrilled. Congratulations!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
