OK that's some sewing this summer.

i had a great time using patterns I've seen in books and mag. there are quilts done from Kathy Holland, Bonnie hunter,jelly roll books Betsy Ross. As i was doing them i really didn't look at them more so the # i had done so seeing them lay out was so neat. I'm half way there . I know i can get them done. I guess i better start thinking what to work on next.
