I am so excited about the quilt I am working on. All the corners match up. I learned so many new tricks and gained great knowledge by quilting next to experienced quilters for a whole day.
I even got tips and tricks regarding machine quilting, which I didn't realize I had already dabbled in for my last quilt!


I just would like to encourage anyone in the metro Jackson, MS area to visit Quilt Arts on Lakeland Drive. They are so helpful and full of knowledge and information and great classes for every level. They also have absolutely beautiful fabrics.
This quilt is so easy and there is hardly any waste fabric. The pattern is called Turning Twenty. It is made from 20 fat quarters, which even accounts for the border, but not the backing. Once the cutting is done, this is the longest process, putting all the squares together is a snap! This is my backing:
Hope you like it!
