    She thought it was the oddest way to make a quilt, but she did it. I told her I would post the pictures and print out the comments for her. She also makes the English paper piece hexagons, i must have a zillion by now. I love her, she's my biggest fan!

    ags is my husbands business forgot to remove the watermark

    Good for your momma. Never stop learning. Hope I can do the same at that age.

    It turned out beautifully. She is right, it is an odd way to make a quilt but it worked and it is wonderful
