The top picture is a baby quilt I was working on, and the bottom picture is the quilt I have been working on since 2001.  I am finally to the point of hand quilting it. Sorry that this is 2 posts, but I promise I will get better as I go on.

an awesome site You can read about and enter the giveaways until April 15th at 10:00PM CMT.  But they started march 15th so remember to start there.  Go here for the most awesome giveaway I have ever seen or heard about.  They are giving away not only an AccuQuilt Fabric Cutter,  but they are having 31!!!!!!!! days of giveaways of the kind of products and notions that many quilters and crafters only dream about owning.  I have ordered from her site and not only did I receive my order quickly but, there was also a note in with my order thanking me for ordering from her.  I went by her recommendations and bought a seam ripper with a surgical steel blade and it is the best thing I have ever done I no longer fight with seams to remove them.  It is almost worth having to rip them out.

Alexis is quilting!

I know I don't get to other peoples sites the way I should, so I would just like to say I do really appreciate  the followers I have.  Thank you very much for sticking in there with me.  On a lighter note, my 15 year old granddaughter has decided to learn how to quilt!  (Can I throw a party over this news.)  She has been watching her mom put together her quilt and has caught the bug.  She has drawn her own design and figured out the fabric,and the sizes she needs, and has started cutting the fabric for her first quilt.  I am so proud of them both.  Well better get going, I will have more on  the quilts later.

DD's quilt

My DD is quilting.

My DD is making a quilt.  I am so glad she is finally quilting.  It is something I tried to teach her to do when she lived at home with her oldest daughter Alexis, but she moved to Florida before she got to really get into quilting.  Now she is really doing a good job. The pattern is her own and she is on row 3. If you go to the next post you will see a picture of the quilt she is making.
