My first panto...

I'm in love...




Just remember my comment the other day....
"quilting is an art, and I'm no artist"....


BUT.....

Give me a pattern to follow with a jimmied-up stylus (pic will come tomorrow of that rig--LOL), and I'm feeling like I can actually make some nice looking designs.... I can't remember the name of this panto---it was in a quilting book from Cheryl Barnes of Goldthreads.com

I feel like I'm ready for a "real" quilt---one that won't go much further than family members :0) And then....maybe the Quilts for Kids???

Happy Thursday!

Wonderful! can't wait for tomorrow's pic ;-) The "no artist" is a pretty good one ...even if she insist on saying that she is not...

Hugs,

You're up and running already, and your panto looks really good. Can't wait to see more.

I just finished a Quilts for Kids quilt. Enjoyed making it and hope it brightens up the face of a child. I'm like you. I can make a quilt by following directions. I haven't taken too many chances making my own. But I love doing it and having fun. Enjoy what you do.

Now how cool is that? Think about how many quilts you will be able to finish now that you know the finishing can be as easy as follow along the lines? Your practice piece looks awesome. Too bad your weekend will be busy, but maybe some time can be carved out for one or two quick quilts.
