    As some in chat have heard me talk about this quilt- they have asked for pics - so here they are. My niece is taking a class called "Fashion" and as part they had to make a quilt :lol: So my niece asked me to help - now I gave her guidance and suggestions - but she did it all herself :thumbup:

    Hopefully she will be inspired to continue the tradition that runs in her family.

    She did a wonderful job and should be very proud of it.

    Beautiful young lady. She did a great job, everything lined up so pretty. And I love her colors, too. Bet you are proud of her and tell her we are proud of her, too.

    Thanks for sharing.

    It's a family affair!

    I love it how the families get involved, and she did a fantastic job. I hope she continues and makes many more quilts in the future.

    Wonderful! She's really taken to it, huh? Love her fabric choices.

    Well, you forgot to tell her she has to hold her tongue between her teeth to get that binding to fall real straight. Oh, I know, you're letting her learn that on the next one.

    Great job, Aunt Sharon, you got the whole family involved!
    Hugs

    Sam did a great job due to a great teacher. At home not at school. She had a lot of fun doing it. Tonight her grandmother (me) starts a quilt. Wish me luck. Sharon will be looking over my shoulder.LOL
