    Nan's Christmas present Shhhhh! Don't tell

    I believe I have been very blessed to have such a wonderful MIL, so for Christmas this year I decided to make her a quilt. I used the Carpenters Wheel pattern that someone had shared here on QB.... decided to work on my free motion quilting on my sewing machine.... I hope you enjoy looking!! But please don't say anything to nan as it is a secret!!

    She should love it, your secret is safe with me!!! Good job on the quilting too!!
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    I made a Carpenter's Wheel with many colors (I think 9, actually). I liked YOURS much better. I'm sure she'll love it. Donna

    I am thinking of doing a Carpenters Star for Son & wife, I did one for my mother's 85th birthday, But it was only a single... Can I ask what your measurements are? For the quilt and also for each square. I need to make a king size... Thanks
