I have been working on this for a couple of years....... I have 18 squares done and 2 to go.  I am going to finish it for the holidays.  I love making quilts.  I can finish a baby quilt or a lap quilt in 2 days and those are my favorite because you get so much satisfaction seeing your end result! Whenever I make something for myself I take longer!  Must be the cobbler and his shoes theory!

 You CAN! I took a quilting class sponsered by the local fabric shop.  The initial cost was around 75.00 for the class and around $200.00+ for fabric and supplies.  But it was worth it! I had wanted to do it for years.  I took the class with my sister so that made it fun and we helped each other out when we got stuck.  The gifts I have made will someday be heirlooms and that is the best part!

 Thank you for your kind words! You are so right! Giving homemade quilts and jewelry make such beautiful gifts! I love making crafts also especially around Christmas! I have made many lap quilts with Christmas fabric as gifts and they are always so well received!
