Although I have made quite a few other quilts, this quilt was the first quilt made using my embroidery machine. The pattern is 'Balloon Pals' by Margaret Collings. She is a local digitizer, but I don't think she has her own website. It was made for the first grandchild of a friend of mine.

This is great Shirley. I have done most 'crafty' things but never tried quilting. I think you need masses of patience, yes?

Thanks elenu. Everyone seems to think you need lots of patience - I think it's the same as any hobbie. I just find it very therapeutic.

Hi Shirley, I am sure that your friend has a picture of this - to show other's - it would sell the designs. Hehehe! I know that Matthew treasures this quilt, it is lovely. *4U
