    Thought you would like to see my first patchwork quilt I made for hubby and my bedroom. I am really proud of my work. I even made a valance to go with it. What do you think?

    Thank you! I did make quilts for my family but not the cut squares. They were made as "whole" sheet of material on the front and back with "matting" in between. Should I post those pictures??

    You did a very nice job. Your corners match up wonderfully and see its not that hard at all? if you can sew big blocks you can sew smaller ones too! And then the doors to the world are WIDE OPEN when you quilt! You have been a very busy woman these past months. I am excited to see what you whip up next. I think you have caught the bug too.
