3-Day for the Cure

What are you most proud of? I came up with the idea to raffle something handmade; initially considering a blanket. I then became more creative as I went, and decided to try my hand at making my first quilt. I was so please with the quilt that I decided to make a matching pillow. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be sure to use firm iron on backing when embroidering on fleece. Not embroidering with a machine on fleece before I found out how stretchy the fabric is. The thread can easily get caught when not having good support on the back side of the material.

You Can Make This
