A quilt-along

I made this little 24 x 24 quilt so that I could try free-motion quilting following Crazy Mom Quilts instructions. Her instructions are great, but my machine isn't cooperating.

Today I noticed that she's having another quilt-along and I'm going to participate.

I love stars and certainly need the practice with points. Now I just need to decide what colors I want to use.

Is anyone else going to quilt-along?

I love this mini quilt Jo, and I am going to do the quilt a long with Crazy Mom as well, have all the blocks for the last one waiting for me to finish though!

kids at parties? egg & spoon races, apple dunking/tied apple bitting, pass the lifesaver on the matchstick is always popular..

and wow at having your hair chopped off! You are much braver than me!

Long haired lissa!

...Love the new haircut Aunt Jo! So chic! ;o)

...And I love the choice of colors in your quilt - I'm not good at combining colors and I admire people that can... And I have been doing some spring cleaning in my sewing room and came across an unused pattern for a quilt/rug/pillow using prairie points and thought of you - if you would like to have it I can send it to you...just visit me and click on the mailbox and send me your address and I'll give it to you if you want it otherwise it is going in a bag to charity. :o)

...And don't fret over the party - just let come what may. I'm sure you'll do a great job and it will be a good time too! And congrat's on being a college grad - what an accomplishment! You go girl! ;o)
