    The first two quilts I made were for my bosses two babies, one girl and one boy "both premeeies", drew all pictures with directions and ideas from my two daughters 8 and 10 yrs old, all clothing made by hand in whatever shape I needed - then appliqued on, embroidered children figures, along with wool for their hair - didn't have a clue about quilting - never heard about a walking foot, etc., and probably made with polyester, and binding what was wrong with lace - my camera skills and camera were not good either - And to think I gave them as gifts!
    I can only laugh now...but, thanks for looking

    These are so cute and so inventive. You really put tons of effort into making these and it looks like they survived the kids, too. I'll bet your boss thought they were the nicest gifts they received.
