    Would you believe ?????????

    Would you believe that terri bb sent me this gorgeous quilt to practice my longarm quilting on? Now, let me tell you, I was scared to death. But, she reassured me that it was okay to try out anything I wanted to on there and if I messed it up, it would be okay. Now, I'm thinking that all of her toast aint buttered. Right? Cause there is no way, I'd let someone practice on one of my quilts especially if it looked anything like this one. In exchange for quilting, she has free rein to piece a top for me in whichever pattern she chooses. Fair exchange okay. I hope she isn't too disappointed with how it turned out. Do you think she will be happy or should I change my address and phone number?

    ROFL re her toast being buttered!!!! lol But you rose to the occasion with honors!!! You really enhanced the quilt, which - on a quilt this gorgeous - would be hard to do!! Well done.

    That is a "sampler" on steroids. You had a great opportunity to show your skill and wow, you did. I can only imagine the nerves it takes to takeoff on a beautiful quilt as that.
