    I've finished this one. I used to quilt when I was a teenager, and stopped sewing altogether when my son was born, that was 25 years ago. So here's my second quilt since I started sewing again. My sister-in-law is going to quilt it. I'm going to practice FMQ on some potholders or something before I attempt to do a quilt. I should have taken it outside, it looks a little washed out on the kitchen floor.

    You did a wonderful job. The colors are cheerful and well blended. With your skill I hope you won't let another 25 years go by before you make another quilt (smile). Thank you for sharing.

    Really nice quilt. Looks like you didn't forget how to! I must be so nice to come back to. Congratulations.

    If you put your cursor over the red X and it turns into a pointed finger, click on it and you should see a picture appear.
    peace :D

    Thanks, everyone! I'm sure I'm better than I used to be because I have more attention to detail than when I was 17. I'm washing the fabric for the next one, and I've bought enough fabric to make at least 8 more, so I have the bug, for sure.
