My grandmother once made a quilt by this name. It is fantastic, and I am so proud to have it now.
This is not the correct design as many of you quilters will know, but this is my AR quilt made tonight by hand stitch by stitch.;):D
Thanks to Mr. Pinckney for teaching this fun stuff!:D

Seriously, this is great Sandy! The memories of the quilting frames is still fresh in my mind. Well done. :):)

Sandy, this is so wonderful, And that stiching is hard. I still have my quilt frame but there has been no action on it for many a year :D

Hi Mike, yes, they are....from holding the wacom pen! hehehe.
My husband and brother in law built a table for me and I plan on having my friends over this summer to sew with me...I am so looking forward to it. Maybe I can incorporate some of these designs into an actual quilt.;):)

Thanks so much dear Deb!:D

ghx, Thanks so much! Since you like it so much I will increase the res and upload it to my zazzle store soon, I appreciate your kind comment!

Jean, Thank you. So you are a quilter too! This is something that I have wanted to get into for a while. More for wall art actually, so there is no telling what I will make this summer. Might be pretty funny being my first time. I so love to sew clothing and crafts though.

You are right dear Neal-a lot of work indeed! Thank you dear friend!

Thank you MSIE! You should see this quilt top. I need to photograph it and upload it. I am terrible about using the camera. It is something to see.

Thant's for sure how an artist like You must have seen tornadoes passing by ... :D
I hope You got no damage over there.
The casualties accounting in US because of the natural disasters caused by them was surprisingly high and very sad to hear. I wonder whether different building approaches and measures may be found to better safeguard people lives, like it happens with earthquake standing building techniques in places like Japan. :rolleyes::(

Haha Albert! Thank you dear man!

Thanking God above we are all fine, and thank you for asking dear Cesare. It was frightening watching this storm move in and being in a situation like this, one never knows.
