    I made this for my granddaughter. She picked the fabric. It turned out smaller than I had intended, but she likes it anyway.

    Also, it is my first completed quilt that I did on my longarm.

    Thank you for your kind words. :D

    I had trouble with my first attempt at quilting it. My tension was ok on the sample that I did 2 days before, but when I started, it was all loopy on the back. But you can't see it until the machine is out of the way. So I brought it over to my moms and w had lunch and each took a seam ripper to it. LOL

    I have two other quilts ready to go in, one I did and one is a quilt of valor. I wanted to wait with the latter, just to be sure that I do a good job on it. Since it's for someone other than family and who is fighting for our freedom and all. :D
