    The Virginia Project April to December 2011

    I have been very busy working on quilts for my husband's family in Virginia. We arrived via Chicago last night and I stuffed the pillowcases this morning and started to deliver them today. It certainly was a labor of love and each quilt had 2, 3, or 3 pillowcases. They all have been appreciative of thier gifts so far. I tried different patterns, borders, kinds of battings, bindings, threads, etc.
