    Here are some pics of the quilt I am making for future DIL best friend. I have to have it done by Christmas. :roll: :roll: :roll: I hope I make it. Right now I am pinning it......my poor knees :cry: :cry: . This is my least favorite part of quilting. This ole bod just can't take it the way it used to. :lol: :lol:
    the middle is a panel and then I just added borders. I am gonna just stitch in the ditch for the most part and then something decorative thruout the panel as I am a novice at best quilting and since it is a gift I do not want to mess anything up. Colors are more vibrant than they show up in the pics.

    What a quilt!! Hey, have you discovered basting spray??? It's a lifesaver, and it really works!!!!!!!!!! You will save your knees, time and everything. It's one of the best quilting inventions ever. Plus, you can still manipulate it when you're quilting. Try 505, it's supposed to be the best!

    I love your quilt. Very different.

    Check out the sports store for volleyball knee pads. They make crawling on the floor to pin so much easier.

    That is really cute Myrna--Melissa is a Beatles fan and I think she would love it if I made her a quilt like this.

    Great quilt, strangely we are sat watching Paul McCartney singing 'back in USSR'and 'Hey Jude'. She's lucky to be getting something so lovely.

    I bought the Fons and Porter Beatles quilt kit and just finished it for my nephew. Guess what? Had so much fabric leftover, I'm creating a second quilt for my son. The fabrics are so much fun!
