    Thank you for helping me get this quilt started...and now finished!

    Back in September, my niece picked out some fabric for me to use in making her baby girl a quilt. I just did not know where to begin with it...So several months later and asking all of you about it, I decided to do a churn-dash pattern. Well, my sewing skills being what they are, I kept chopping off the corners. Couldn't stand that. So, I turned to something different...hand applique. I loved it! I was able to carry it with me when helping out with my sister and it was something I could work on without having to actually worry about it. LOVED it! Several friends have told me this is one of the favorites I have done. Just wanted to share the finished picture.

    I like how the applique matches the flowers in the background fabric. Fun! Fun!

    Thank you for mentioning the ruffle! My very first one on my own! I enjoy hand quilting, but my machine sewing is not so good (not that my hand quilting is either, but my machine sewing is worse!)...so I've very proud of my first ruffle! It has "lumps" in it around a few of the corners, but my niece said Mollie Cate won't mind. With it already being near 90 degrees here in GA, she won't get to use it till next year anyway!
