    This is just some fabric I got for Christmas that I just sewed together as a blanket.

    In the first 2 pictures, are you reverse quilting? As in quilting from the back? Nice fabrics.

    Very nice! I was at the scrap exchange the other day with the intentions of getting paper but ended up getting fabrics instead, LOL!

    Not yet, but I and my friends Kerry and Sharon are thinking of pitching in and getting the card together.

    It is simply FABULOUS!

    http://www.scrapexchange.org/newindex.htm

    I went in sometime around October and got a tall skinny bag (which they consider to be their large bag) of fabric for $8. Usually its $15 but they were having a sale that day. But anyways you literally get to stuff that bag full of all the scraps you can cram into it. I got a lot! I also picked up a couple of those home decorating fabric books, you know the kind with the fabric samples, for like 5 dollars. Love, love, love this store.

    You can even find some interesting patterns there too. When it warms up you must simply go to Durham and check it out.

    It's worth it if you are planning on buying a lot throughout the year! When I went to 2 of the warehouse fabric sales, they honored the discount. But the last time they didn't :( So I haven't gone back until the other day.

    I love your quilting. I never would have thought to do it that way, but it's perfect.

    Henry, thanks for the link. I saw some stuff I could have used but doubt very much I'll be going to Durham. Great job on your new quilt!
