I love working with fabric and learning new techniques to help me become better at sewing. Forty plus years ago, my ex-wife was sewing a project and having problems with it. Not understanding why it was difficult, I sat down to the sewing machine, read the manual, the pattern, and thought I can do this. I was hooked. So, thank you Kathy for pushing me to a passion I thoroughly love.

Diamonds in the Rough finished
I finished the Diamonds quilt. Waiting for label, but that will be an easy sew..
So here are the pics.
Picture taken by Teri Clark, the long arm quilter who quilted this for me:
The binding has been sewn on

I requested that Kim design her own label, since this is for her grandchild. This is her design.
A friend of mine has an embroidery machine and he did this label for me. We are still trying to decide if the background color should be different. But this is one of the attempts of what it will look like.
And we did go with a new label..and it is sewn on...so truly done.
