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
