    Ok,, remember last year when we did the Spring Theme strip swap? I finally got the top I had put together finished and quilted. I used some solids and prints I had at home from other projects or that I picked up cheap. It's just straight lines on a regular machine, but I did it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Your quilt is beautiful-I really like the colors! I have been wanting to make a quilt that is just straight sewing-I guess I just need to start. You should be very proud of yours!

    Oh thank you!! I am just so excited! I've actually finished 4 now but that was the big one, the hard one, and the one I'm so proud of!! I'm working on the red, white, and blue strips we traded last year.

    That's beautiful! A work of art, and homemade treasures are hard to come by.

    What talent! [​IMG]
