Hi all
I am soooo happy I have quilted a quilt on my machine and my computer is fixed so I can now show you all pics Here I am hard at it this was so exciting I just played around and found what worked for me
here is a pic of the quilt on the frame
I have finished it and it is now on my bed
it is only a single bed size but you have to sleep under all of your quilts dont you
I was so happy with how it turned out I know I still have heaps to learn but for my first one I think I did a good job
ok I will e of now
I hope to load another quilt this week wish me luck

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them
