You have a lot of experience! I did one of the quilts you made as well...the one you took a picture of on 9/2. I got it from the cover of a magazine. I JUST finished it. I just took quilting classes in October so I am REALLY new! I have done two queen sized quilts, one small one and a medium size one. I'm looking forward to my next one, although I haven't decided what that's going to be. I would love to make and heirloom quilt that I can pass down to my kids. I have a 21 year old son and 9 year old boy/girl twins. I guess I'd better get busy on the one for my oldest! I am having so much fun buying fabric and picking out patterns. I have so many things I want to do!
