Keep it? I can't LOL I don't have the room! I have one on my bed, I have 5 in the house on the walls, and I've sold about 10, and donated over 30!

No more room at the inn! The only other option is to stop making them!!!!

LOL, I admire quilters, a couple of my Aunts do it and the work and love they put into it.

I have always wanted a log cabin one. We have a couple different ones my MIL did, when dh was away all the time in his younger days he took one of his mom's, one she hated. She did a double take the first time she came for a visit and saw it on the back of my couch. She still doesn't care for it, but I think she was touched I rescued it and we use it.

I am banned from spending money anyways right now until we move. I think the icing on the cake was the iron mantel clock I bought yesterday Dh is afraid we won't have any room left at the new house, or money to move into it ROFL!

Banned from spending money LOL ... about three months ago, my dad actually saw how much fabric I have and told me flat out ... NO MORE FABRIC ... use what you have before you buy more. I have enough fabric to make about 100 quilts LOL ... good advice! Between my fabric and books, if the house ever catches on fire, it's gone in a flash!

Nice! I haven't done any quilting in a while. For me, quilting means piecing as I will never likely hand quilt something haha! I like that you did a "stitch in the ditch" on the square blocks with the "X" through the four blocks. Very nice!

Funny story about first quilts-

I decided to get into quilting because my grandpa had made a few (very very nice!) quilts. And so one day home on summer break from college, I just decided to make a quilt. So I laid out a bunch of fabric on the floor, grabbed my chalk line and snapped some lines on the fabric!! I even cut everything with scissors back in those days. LOL!

Kyleigh your quilts are beautiful! I love quilting and sewing. I have't done any quilting in a while but the past couple of years I taught my daughter how to sew, which she took to and now loves to do. I remember about 20 years ago my DH and I moved to a big farmhouse in southwestern Colorado, we were not working at the time and I hand sewed every curtain in the house. I didn't have a sewing machine at the time and thought it would be a challenge...it was!
Now if I can only learn to knit!

Wildo ... I'm old enough to know what you are talking about LOL ... I have to admit, I'm happy with the "progress" quilting has made - rotary blades, cutting mats, etc. AND my dream machine!!!

BEARGSD - I can knit also, and am getting ready to knit my Christmas scarves for the season. (I have to do up 150 of them by Dec 15!)

My grandmothers, who have both passed on, taught both my sister and I how to do all the "crafty" things. My sister doesn't like to do it, but I have carried on the tradition. I even know how to weave on a loom ... just don't have one to do it on!
