    finally finished. graduation is only a few weeks away. learned not to leave elastic on and try to sew over it. left a lot of missed stitches. had to go back and resew on my small machine. it is 70 x 100. also have to give a bill. haven't decided how much to charge. talked to local lqs and since it is both pantograph and free hand it would fall between prices.

    It's great. Are the little squares some of the labels? I love your quilting.

    i just dropped it off to the mom. she was in awe. loved it. and yes they are the tags off some of the underwear, the different brands and sizes. she still wants one for herself out of the leftovers. told her it might be a while.

    What a novel idea. I have used all kinds of used fabrics, but never thought of underwear!
