    Started teaching myself to sew in Nov. I have made 7 tops so far.
    Ok I might be slightly obsessed. :lol: Here are the pix of them all.
    Please keep in mind, I didnt even know how to work a sewing machine before then. I am taking a quilting class now so hopefully I will be able to finish them.
    listed in the order that I finished them

    This was a team effort with my dsil

    Great job on all of them! I especially like the last one and the one with the birds, but they are all lovely! You seem to have the knack for it. Go for the quilting!

    Love, love your quilts. Find it hard to believe you are new to sewing. Every single one is lovely. Would you mind sharing the names of the patterns or the source.
