Here is The Progress on My Quilt !!!! What you see here are TONS of pins holding the three layers together... I used EVERY pin in The House !!!!... Now You can't see on here but I drew on hearts all over the place which I will be quilting....
This is the First Embroidery and First Quilting I have done so I am really trying hard to make it work out.... :)
I bought the Fabrics at The Quilt Place an then ironed on some Girls to embroider..
Did the Embroidery..
Then sewed on some Borders..
Then layered the batting and fabrics....
Then pinned it ALL over..
And NOW comes the challenge ... Quilting :)
I'll let you know How it Goes!!!

you inspired me, i went & bought a book on quilting this week. I figure with all the embroidery I've been doing lately why not throw in quilting ;)

Such a lovely quilt. Lucky people have you as their grandparent. I have an adopted nephew and am getting an adopted niece from Armenia this year, so I know your excitement. Just love this quilt. The newspaper with the details is so cool.
