I volunteered to do the machine quilting on a small quilt our guild made, that goes to cancer patients in the hospital when they have chemo. They put it on to keep them warm.
It took me a long time to get good at writing with my machine, but now I can just go at it, and I love to put little messages in my quilts=)
When I finished that, I continued to work on my giant 3D flower I am making! It is going to be a modern flower quilt!
