    I love them!! I am so glad to see someone else ties their quilts!!! I am not gifted at FMQ at all and old hands just will not do handquilting anymore, so I tie all mine. I hesitate to show them as I see all the ones that are quilted on machines so beautifully. SO I AM THRILLED TO SEE HOW LOVELY YOURS ARE.....God Bless
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    thanks for all the glad tidings. wish more members would post thier tied quilts. Like my Gramma Pansy always said. tied quilts are hugging quilts, made to be used everyday. fancy quilt just get packed away.

    i do make special quilts to. But her saying has always stuck with me.
