    Hi all,

    Finally got to my computer. Mostly using DD's Ipad and for some reason can't upload pics from there. So anyhow, here is my first quilt, made by taking a sampler class. I made it for my DD. She loves France so it was France inspired. That is why the borders are a lot bigger than I intended, but I wanted to really show the fabric. She loves it and that's all that counts right??
