I made up two blocks took some pictures and copied and pasted them into a picture so my MIL could get an idea of what I was thinking for the quilt top. It took several different block patterns, but we figured it out in the end.
this book several times I wanted to try out free hand quilting. I loved doing it, but I did learn that my machine is not up for hours of quilting at one time--now to saving for a quilting machine.
I loved how this turned out and am excited to stitch up some other quilts.
