Thanks for the comments on my quilt for grandson. I will not do one this way again. I will use blocks instead of trying to use a piece of material. Then I will put the throw on the back. But he will love it and will not see the mistakes until maybe he is older. God Bless. Darlene in Indiana
I would like to welcome all the new members to QCA. I am new to QCA myself and hope to learn a lot about quilting. I made this quilt top about a month ago and it was the first pieced quilt I have ever made.
Very pretty, hhhdmh. Piecing is my favorite part, doing the quilting is another story all together.
hhhdmh:I made this quilt top about a month ago
It's lovely. Hope we hear and see more of you and your quilts.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
Thanks! I have been bitten by the quilting bug. I do use embroidery in my quilts. But now I will do more of the traditional quilting, I hope. Thanks again and God Bless. Darlene in Indiana
My avatar is my son and grandson with the 19 1/2 pound cabbage my grandson grew in our garden for a school project. It was the biggest cabbage I had ever seen.
I'm working on quilts. Got an unexpected "free" day. Several friends were supposed to come up from out of town but weather prevented the drive. So, house is tidy, soup is already bubbling and no company! Dogs are curled up by the fireplace, cat is on my worktable and hubby is happily doing something.
I'm working on Loyal Union Sampler blocks and playing with EQ7 designing the layout I may use. It's snowing outside but warm and cozy inside. Perfect day.
WOW! Beautiful quilts are being done and posted! Lots of busy bees, good work everyone!
hhmdh I know what you mean about quilting on these large sizes I have one thats still waiting to be finished, but yours looks great.

Weezee, great looking quilt and very nice retirement gift.
Michelle, I like the camerason the front of your bag.
hhhmdh, love all three og your quilts. Nice job on your first one.
I have no idea what 5 year old girls are into. Probably iPads and piercings. But I got a kit for this felt doll in a magazine so I made it. Then I made a bed for it with a pillow and a matching standard size pillow for my niece. No clue if she'll like it, but I had fun making it. Lol.
I posted before reading back on the thread.
weezee - WOW. Cool pattern!!
hhh, looks great for a 1st quilt. I can't imagine matching so many seams in a 1st but you did an amazing job!
Carolyn, your doll and bed along with the matching pillowcase are sure to be a hit.
I have a more serious problem with my GGD who will be 6 on Christmas eve, she wants a bald headed baby with eyes the open and close and feels like a real baby when you hold it. Do you know where she saw one? In my doll bed. The doll is 70 years old and was mine when I was small. It wears preemie size clothes. She wants one just like mine so she can practice for when her Mom has her baby in April. You can't get those kind of dolls anymore. --- but she asked Santa for one. Goinny
Michelle, DGD camera bag looks great.
Karla, didash, Barbara, Ginny,Thank you.
hhhdmh , both your quilt look wonderful.
