    My first quilt top finished!

    The material for the blocks is what I cut from clothes my dds have outgrown. I bought the muslin for the sashing and the back. I'm pleased with how it turned out and I have learned a lot! I'm going to hand quilt it. Thanks for looking.

    The kids will look at it for a long time to come and say, "I remember that shirt!" or "I remember that top, Mom!". That will be fun!

    Be sure and keep this one for yourself, you'll be glad you did since you used the girls dresses in it. Keep up the good work.

    I love the memories. They really are the heart of quilting. IMHO. You did a great job piecing and placing colors for a first quilt!
