    Ok, I wanted to help Sharon out and volunteered to make a quilt for her dontion commemtment. But after seeing the picture and seeing that I made it backwards, she may send it back to me LOL

    It was my first "fence rail" (or whatever you would call it now) and my first tied quilt. I am having a in law family invation next week or I would have taken more time with it and may have caught the fact that the zig zags are going right to left instead of left to right. So they are Zag Zigs?

    It will be in Tues. mail to Sharon.

    You are so thoughtful, Terri. It's a great quilt and I know Sharon will treasure it. Don't you ever run out of steam?? I got tired just imagining how quickly you put that together. What a WOMAN!

    I love the label. How did you do that?

    Pinkrose, I think you did a wonderful job.
    Mistakes? Nope, don't see them. That's the great thing about blocks,,,,you can put them together however you want so it comes out either traditional or what I call "MY WAY".
    I think it's an awesome thing you have done!


    Oh Jackie...I'm hoping you don't think that was ME who did that...nope...can't take credit for that.

    1. it's adorable and whoever gets it will be thrilled. :-)

    2. the steps don't go down. they go up ... just from a different starting point than you intended. going up is a good thing. :-)
