My very first "Quilt" I hope!

Just getting the stuff together was a huge step for me!

See! I even took two pictures with the cutter still in its' package!
Lilli standing over me-you can do this Mom!!! The soft little push I needed!

And finally! I actually managed to get the squares cut!!!

I did it! I have my squares all cut and now I am ready to sew! I wanted to work on this so bad
yesterday but had to go out of town. Dang it! Well, you gotta do what you gotta do! I am really going to work hard on this today!!!
I just can't wait to get the top finished!

So with this I chose the word courage for my haiku!

Walking the gang plank
Softly pushed by someone
Soaring, achieving

All I needed was Lilli's encouragement! Thank you Lilli!

I hope you have a great day!

Hi Vickie: Good for you to resolve to learn how to quilt. Pardon the shameless self-promotion but you might like to check out the tutorial on my blog - I am showing some friends how to make my "Sea Creatures" quilt, and about ready to post Part 2.

Way to go Vickie!!!! I knew you could do it. Now carry on!! It's fun but you'll get addicted to all this stuff. Just a warning. LOL!
