Little Rhody Girl is a Quilting Machine

I have never attempted quilting, the shear thought of it was pretty overwhelming. I got my mom's old sewing machine that is as old as I am when I moved out and I have used it for a few small projects around the house but as I was finishing my beautiful afghan I was already deep in thought over what my next project would be. I decided to try a quilt. My MIL is a quilting fiend and she gave me some wonderful recomendations and on Wednsday I took the plunge and bought the supplies and fabric for my first project. I am pretty proud with what I have done so far.

I turned this....


into this....

star points
