    I love your work, style, and variety. :)

    My four year old grandson LOVES helping me quilt. His favorite part is to sit on my lap and use the sewing maching. I run it at it's slowest speed and put my hands close to his, NEVER over or he says, "I can do it Nana". He also enjoys looking at quilting books and magazines with me and lets me know what his favorites are, he talks about the shapes and colors and what he thinks would look better. FUNNY, but my son is also much more interested in the quilting process than my daughter or nieces. When I made a wall hanging for my DSIL my daughter just didn't like all the colors and prints in it, when my son saw it he said he loved it, ESPECIALLY all of the colors and prints. Needless to say that I have several ideas for quilts for my grandson and son, my daughter also, but hers are a little harder, so I did join the B/W block swap and she is very excited about it because that is going to be hers when it's done and she is loving the blocks that she has seen!

    I LOVE swaps! I've just recently started doing some in two other online quilting groups that I'm in, and will, I'm sure, start participating here soon too! Just too much fun to pass up!!

    Very nice projects, KittyGram! You give me hope that I can be brave enough to do an applique quilt one day :D

    You do some AWESOME work!! All of it is fantastic, but WOW your applique is absolutely beautiful! I think it sooo great that you and your daughter are surrounding the little one with crafts, and artsmanship. It's so wonderful when you start them at a very young age to appreciate the beauty of a craft (or crafts in this case) and the joy of doing it instead of just admiring or buying it. You're instilling a lot in that little one...keep up the wonderful work with her!!!

    All your projects are great. Your applique is fantastic-no one would ever know it is your first needle turn project.

    Thank you, everyone!!! Today I had my 3 year old granddaughter helping me with HER quilt - it has 4" squares (cut size) that are various pinks and greens - some stripes, polka dots, roses, etc. - just a colorful, floral patchwork, which along the top will have a white strip of fabric (not sure how big yet), and will have yo-yo flowers in that area. So, she picked out the placement of each square for the first 2 rows (with some guidance, since I kind of wanted dark, light, dark....), and as I sewed them together, she was playing in my craft room, which has a toybox in it for them, she was talking to her dolls about "her sewing machine", "her iron", "her quilt that she's making"... I can just see the two of them now, playing together in their bedroom at home....!!!! It might be the new rage!!

    First of all, thank you!!!! I always feel like like I don't have enough time to work on my projects.

    secondly, gridded fusible is single sided fusible w/ 1" grid lines on it. I've only purchased it once, not sure if it comes in other sizes, but what I got is 45" wide, and I purchased 4 yards. I then iron the 2" squares for the double Irish chain onto the fusible, and then flip it over, sew along the grid lines, and voila, the top of a quilt!!! LOVE the stuff!!!

    I love all your work - I don't know how I missed your thread previously as I would have replied sooner.

    Your Needleturn Applique is lovely - the patterns are not ones I have seen before?

    thank you quilter1962. It's called Applique Affair. Just google Laundry Basket Quilts - it's one of those!!!!

    I haven't even touched the applique since late April. I've been needing "instant gratification" lately!!!!

    I'm going to try to add a few more. Let's see how the camera's working tonight. It's been giving me some problems.

    For my ex-MIL, part of her 70th b-day gift. They weren't quite finished at this point, but I forgot to take pics of the finished products : (
