A quilt can become something different.

I enjoy the Amish colors and working with them is always fun.

I think this is the first time I used a dark batting and it makes a world of difference with the black fabric.

 This is my Great-Grandmothers rocker. A very long time ago, I'd said to my grandmother, "What a great chair," and years later she arrived one day with it for me. With them both ladies gone, I just like setting is in, it brings me peace.

Full of YOURSELF Quilt

Not too do or Full of YOURSELF Quilt !
Full of YOURSELF Quilt, what not to do in Quilting
This is my what not to do quilt and it has never been to a quilt show, until now !

It's the quilt that gives my heart perpetuation's, It's just not right.

Full of YOURSELF Quilt

This quilt is 20+ years old and one of the first times I appliqued and pieced on the same quilt.

Full of YOURSELF Quilt

I think it would be better, IF I added loads more quilting, but that's not going to happen.
Machine pieced and hand appliqued and quilted (some what) 

Can you also see that my colors are not right, the applique is lost in the piece work.

Full of YOURSELF Quilt, what not to do in Quilting

This is my, "don't get  full of yourself quilt ! "

It brings me right down to earth, every time !

I've come along way!   HA !
