    I Must say, that after all the quilts I have finished, this one is one that I am extremly proud of. I have used so many techniques that I learned about from all of you.
    1. I used the 1/4 footthat I would not have looked for in my box of feet that came with my machine if someone on here did not brng it up. It made it so much easier to make sure that I kept my seems true the all the way through.
    2. I finally have a boarder that is put on the correct way. I have tried different techniques and finally got it... So proud...
    3. I did an all over miandering quilting on it to hide the fact that my squares where not quiet squares. One of those things that nobody will notice but me... :-) I do not know if I actually "like" the look of the quilting now, but what is done is done.
    This quilt will be raffled off for the army to support the service members in need. I did it last year and raised $375.00 .

    YOu can see the backing on this one.

    I think next time I will try to do a pattern that will enhance the block. I finally "get" that part of it when I finished thie meandering. LOL

    You did a really nice job! Isn't it a great feeling to challenge yourself to new techniques and look back when you finish the quilt and can say...I did it! Good for you! Now on to the next challenge!

    Sorry that you are a gold star mom. My husband is active duty and served 24 months in Iraq. We have lost too many of our young people over there. May god bless you. Beth

    Just a wanted to give an up date. The raffle was finished and it made 430.00 dollars for the military families. I am so excited that it made so much.
