    Love your quilts. I so want to try the friendship braid. Was it difficult? Did you use the binding tool?

    I got a sewing machine for my husband. Good trade, huh!?!

              Yes, I used the binding tool and no, it wasn't difficult at all or I couldn't have done it! I've been quilting (piecing) for a little over a year. MSQC has shown me so many wonderful ways to make pretty quilts without being intimidated! You'll have fun, it was fast too.

                Twnk these are great! Don't you love when you can just dig into a project with no "hubby" distractions? I just have to get one of these binding tools. I won the weekly giveaway and was waiting for it to appear as a Daily Deal but then I saw the Shebert Pips Jelly Roll and could not resist so I spent all my points on that. Now I will get the tool next. For the braid - did you use a jelly roll? Just one?
                Thanks for sharing your beauties!

                      I love the friendship braid quilt. That has to go on my list for "next" . . . . . . LOL! Okay, I wrote the first two sentences and then went and watched the video for the friendship braid quilt and now, I have to watch for a Daily Deal that I like so I can order the Binding Tool. Though, I think I could figure it out without it but why rack my brain. Need the brain for other things . . . .like quilting the quilt. LOL!.

                        nice job twynk...it is amazing what we can get done when the hubby isn't home...I'm a nurse and work three 12 hour shifts a week, he works the standard 8-4:30 M-F job, so I get a couple of days every week that I can do what I want...hmmmj....quilting is always at the top of the list!

                          Lovely quilts! Looks like such a lot of sewing, hard to imagine it being fast. Thanks for sharing, I might actually be brave enough to try one now!

                            QUILT POLICE! I just looked at my picture and realized I turned one of the columns incorrectly! It'll drive me nuts so I guess I have some "unsewing" to do! aaaarrrggghhh!

                              These are great! Both are on my to do list....I better pick up the pace
                              To quilt or not to quilt?.....what a ridiculous question!
