    Well, Dotty, I was going to comment how yummy your top quilt looks... mmmm, good! But, I see you and Nancia are planning a future wedding... I hope the happy couple appreciates all of your loving help...and they were forever happy wrapped in their Moms' quilts!

    Dotty, so you are going to marry off your son now?lol This sounds like a great thread, but I just now found it, so maybe someone should let others know about it maybe on the main thread? Of course, I haven't been on here a lot lately so I may have missed a note on there. If I have time I would love to do one for June.

    So if I read this thread right, I have a daughter that is 21 who needs a wealthy young man to sweep her off her feet. Is that to young? I know, in Washington, may be a long distance relationship.

    Now is the theme for June the Independence Day theme suggested? Or was it something else? I have some fabric sitting in a UFO pile of mine that is red white and blue that I could use for the challenge if that is what was decided.

    Do we have a thought for July? Since these are for ourselves, or gifts if we choose, then there should be no fear if someone likes it or not. Please elaborate so we have a direction.

    June has 2 suggestions, Independence & Your Favorite Color. I am enjoying these little gems. There are 2 big projects waiting in my brain but I have been too distracted by family life to dig into them. So we need 1-2 good ideas for July!

    i will check with my dear son to see if 21 is in range. he is 31, so that may seem too old to your daughter. anyhow, why are you trying to marry her off so young? he is just a baby to me, too. lolol !
    ok, i need to come up with another idea for this challenge then. but first, i have to finish the painted aaqi painted quilt. i plan to quilt it tonight. wish me luck!

    Yeah, 31 is a little old for her. Not trying to marry her off so young, just have someone else be her close friend for about 3 years then they can get married. That way she finishes college, gets a job, lives on own for a little bit, then she gets married. By then I will be ready for grandkids. LOL

    maybe she just wants everyone to be a free spirit and do whatever we like.

    June: Independence

    Here's my idea to show my three children, striving for independence. Birthstone colors. We live by the 96th Street subway stop. My color is light green.
