My First Quilting Job!

A really nice, and trusting, friend gave me her finished quilt to quilt (for pay). I was more than a little nervous about being sure it was done right. I was super cautious and it really turned out nice. The edges in the photo aren't great because all I did was sew the binding on by machine and she will finish it with handwork. Thanks for trusting me Virginia!

First Big Quilts

Well, they are not exactly HUGE but they are twin size and up to now I had just done practice pieces so this was huge to me. It is the same quilt pattern that is a sampler type quilt I designed for my quilt guild last year. We did a block a month. It was going to be "Amish" style but some did not want to do a dark quilt so I made two blocks each month to show it could be done both ways. I am pretty happy with the way they turned out.
