I just started doing FMQ too and it's so much fun - now it's a rush to get the quilts done so I can have fun doing the quilting part :) Love your heart vine quilting in the border area! Great quilt and great work for charity! I'm doing bunches of quilts for Project Linus - same type of charity. It feeds our love of sewing and for a great cause doesn't it? Keep up the great work!!!

Nancy, Let me apologize for not responding to this sooner...Sometimes life gets in the way..:) I just want to say thanks so much for your kind words....It was such a gratifying feeling when it was completed..In the future my goal is to do pillowcases for breast cancer victims and charity quilts for the kids.....! Have a great sewing day!
NB Originals asked:
LOL! I so understand how 'life' gets in the way! I just dropped off three more quilts to Project Linus (forgot to take pics as I was in SUCH a rush to drop them off!). The project linus blankets are not only for a great purpose, it provides me with the opportunity to practice the FMQ designs and increase my skill level. I want to eventually make a Quilt of Valor for a veteran too, perhaps after the first of the year I'll finally get to that. But the Project Linus will be a constant for me. Since I started quilting in April, I've donated 9 different quilts to PL - so much fun!!! Keep quilting and don't forget to breathe deeply and often LOL! Happy Holidays to you!
