My first completed quilt was made just before my wedding. The "Quilt
Police" would have been appalled by it: 5/8" seams, a sheet for backing
and no binding! ;-)
27 years later it's still my favorite project. :-)

Wow $500 - since I'm fairly new to sewing $500 would sure jump start my
stash! When I see these amazing pictures of peoples sewing rooms I'm
blown away by the amount of fabric so many have!

If I had $500 I would buy enough fabric for a whole bedding set for my
bed AND pay someone else to quilt it on a long arm machine! I love
making quilt tops, the actual quilting of them? Not so much.

If I were to win $500 for my Project...I would make tie quilts for my
grandson's soccer team in Germany. I just returned and he is 6 years
old, playing soccer like a champ. I am making him a beautiful tie
quilt with red, white & black soccer balls(team name is Red & White) on
one side & black on back. In Germany they do not have the fleece fabric
and my son was ectatic when he saw the fabric I ordered and will be
making the blanket with.I would love to surprise the team with blankets
for all....with the quilt book I would use all my scraps and make lap
quilts for wheel chair students I worked with for 23 years...just
retired in June.
