    I taught my daughter inlaw how to quilt and finish the top of my Aunt's quilt with the scraps and a few pieces I had.

    My daughter inlaws first quilt. She was here to wait out the storm

    My back is very, very sore today. I did most of the pinning for her on the floor...I know better than that. Good thing I have a desk job. That is where I stayed for the whole day.

    I love doing projects when I have company...so much nicer than just sitting around gossiping.

    What a great gift your DIL received in personal, one on one instruction. And a great way to not have to think about the storm. Glad you didn't lose power!!

    Nice job ladies! Are you going to incorporate something into the quilting that these were done during Irene?

    Wonderful quilts. It is terrific you are passing this passion on to a younger generation. Your DIL is very lucky.
