    I am trying to learn how to get a new thread.

    Here is a picture of a quilt I finished last night. It is going to my husbands first wife's nefew and his bride. I guess that makes me the step-aunt (???). Anyway, they are expecting in August.

    That is one special baby quilt Are the Suzy Goose characters fussy cut or cross stitched? I can't tell. Either way, it is an exceptional baby quilt and I know that new baby's mom will be thrilled that you thought so much of her!

    The Suzy Zoo characters are embroidered. As well as the baby's name in the top middle block - Carmen Brodie.

    That is SO cute! I have those designs too, I hope you don't mind if I steal your idea for a future quilt. I love the way you laid out your quilt and the colors you chose. Great work!

    Thanks and yes, use my ideas! I just used scraps from another quilt that I had done. I enlarged the Suzy Zoo designs to 120% but they were still too small for the 12" blocks so I created the crosshatch around them. I like how they turned out.

    Most people find it kind of funny being that is my husbands first wife. Although she is not an X. She died several years ago from cancer. Their youngest son was 6 month old. He was around 10 when he and his brothers became mine. They went thru a horrid step mom and had a hard time adjusting to me at first. The oldest was beginning 8th grade and hated me. He went to visit his mothers family that first christmas and his mothers mom told him "She is your mom now and you need to treat her like it". Anyway, he got his mothers mom's permission to love me and they have all been mine since. The family is great and has welcomed me and my kids (I have 4 and now 7) with open arms.

    I won't tell you about my eX...

    Thanks for all the encouragement

    Ive been there too with a kid that just hated me, spoiled rotten she was, thankfully her Dad and I broke up before we got to the marriage stage.

    Good luck :D Elle
