    What a wonderful quilt. I love it. My grand daughter and daughter love pink. Showed them both the picture and now GD wants one just like it. It is wonderful and can't wait to see how you quilt it. Send us pictures.

    Since I don't have much experience yet, I figured I'd do the tie method and may stitch in ditch around each boarder. Later as I get more "feel" I'll venture out and try other things.

    It was weird. A fun weird tho. Ok if all remembers my first horror (rows didn't match up) I took it all apart except squares. Got my new machine and the quilt looked like it NEEDED squares. Not sashing. Sooooooooooo I cut out squares and sewed and all matched up perfect, Ok I'm on a roll, 2nd,3rd,4th row hrmm ok this is cool. Last row , perfect. Hrmmmmmmm lets see, border? How about this way. Het this is fun I say. Before I knew it I was done, but in a way saddened cuz it is done. LOL

    My Aunt came over yesterday with ALL her sisters fabric. (My Aunt doesn't sew) Diana can no longer sew with her arthris, so I inherited 5 boxes of fabric,rulers, cutting mat, 5 rulers. Her machine went to her daughter, but she didn't want all the other stuff.(happy dance) I thought maybe I'd play with a pinwheel? I have sooooooooooo many ideas floating in my head lol

    Great job Bev! The first quilt is always special. You remember your boo boos and that feeling of success the most. 5 boxes of fabric- you must have been tickled pink! Like Christmas. Let's see pics of your new stash! Welcome to the addiction!
