Quilt for SIL

Here's a pic of the quilt I did for my SIL Jennifer.  It took 2 years and some help from a friend to complete it.  Thanks D, couldn't have finished it without your help!!  Whew, last large quilt I'll ever make (Well, besides putting together another one, I finished the front)!!

  3. Thanks so much! I started with patterns on how to quilt, but they didn't help me with doing some of the quilts I chose. So when I do a small baby quilt, which I find the easiest, I do it very simply, and that always looks good. I hope you do try it once at least, since it is fun too!! Happy Stitching and Quilting (if you try) !!(ps. love to see it!!) :)

    1. Thanks Emma! Even brighter in person. I used warm and natural in centre and then flannel on the backing as it's for cold weather!! :)
