    Oh Michelle!
    You are going to get some amazing pictures. We all have at least one in our closet. Including one of my when I dig it out of the not finished cupboard. I can’t wait to see your response. It will be fun.

    Anyone else seeing a trend here?

    Note to self: Avoid use of purple fabric. Especially when on painkillers.

    As Michele’s Mom, I don’t even sew buttons on or do any type of sewing period. ( I save these projects for when Michele comes!)
    I can’t vote on this contest because all the entries look beautiful to me. I love the colours, patterns, and appreciate the work it took to make these quilts.
    I look forward to seeing who wins this contest from the eyes of experienced quilters.
    Good Luck to everyone…the prizes look and sound wonderful!
