    Since October is pastor's appreciation month....I had a idea of a quilt. I incorperated a couple other ladies in the church that are also quilter's and gleened A-LOT of advice and tips. We had great fellowship while piecing the top, but in the end I was left to do the quilting....which I was really scared of doing. i wanted this quilt to be "just right" because of who it is for. Anyways...here are a few pics. Let me know what you think. [​IMG]

    Sorry that this pic is sideways.... [​IMG]

    Quote:I sure hope he does, this is the first quilt that I have made that has no puckers or fabric overlapping the thread. This is the only quilt that i have made that is 98% perfect.
