Colleen said...

Twyla and Lindsey, thank you for the nice comment on my OSU quilt. I only piece the tops, all my quilts are machine quilted. Easier on my hands but also I can be more carefree for them to be used on the floor for naps or taken to ballgames. Thanks again for appreciating my work.

Pearl said...
