    Default Red, White, & Blue! My first E V E R Dresden!

    It's a good thing I made this for my Mom. My sewing machine decided to act out. I'm putting her in timeout at the repair shop. I've done everything I know to do and the feed dogs are still not feeding the fabric evenly.

    Anyway, I struggled through this for my Mom who was visiting when this Catalina Layer Cake arrived. She fell in love with the fabric, so this is for her. It's a little busy for my taste so I added a few blades of solid Kona. Had it been for me, I probably would have made the binding and center solid also, but for Mom it's all about the fabric, so I continued with the Catalina collection.

    I'm still proud of it--even though it is flawed! I learned . . . .
    --Only God can make the perfect quilt, all others he left for me.

    It's gorgeous, your mum has good taste and her daughter has talent! I love contour quilting and it looks really effective on there.

    That's really cute Teresa and I like the fabric. It sure doesn't look like you had any struggles. It looks great. I have the template but I haven't tried this yet.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
