Quilting MeMe

Courtesy of Shelina and making the rounds of bloggerland. I like this one as it is not requiring us to run down ourself by naming odd or weird things about our personalities but rather share our experiences in quilting. Bold face indicates something we have done---copy/paste and add your two cents on your own blog if you wish. No tagging needed.

  1. Linda, I missed your post when you originally did this quilting meme. Thanks for doing it. Looks like you have done a lot! I can't imagine doing a king size quilt - or trowing away a quilt, although I am sure I have a couple that probably need it.


Thanks for stopping by. If you comment will require a reply back, please include your email addy. Unless I am involved in a blog hop, my posts will be moderated and your comment will not appear until I am notified. THX for understanding--this option beats word verification!
