Mail, Turning Twelve

Yesterday, I also got 2 other things in the mail, but didn't have the picture handy on the magazine, and just had a cardboard box on the desk. I got the magazine on Amy's recommendation, she made the cover quilt, and plus it has one of Bonnie Hunter's quilts included. I haven't read it yet, but may tonight while my husband watches his Red Sox. The little desk is a cheapie from Target for my Janome Jem. I wanted to keep it in the family room for when we have company using my sewing room to sleep in.

Also, I have picked out the fabrics for a Turning Twelve quilt that I'm making for my dentist's four year old son. I'm going to try to quilt this one myself, worse comes to worse, I guess I can tie it (lol).

The table is the perfect size for your sewing machine and I'm sure the price was right too.

I love the colors for your Turning Twelve quilt. I bet the quilt will be gorgeous when it's done.

Hi Candace
You are such a busy lady....I sometimes have trouble keeping up with you!
Sounds like you had a lovely visit with your granddaughter.....I can't wait to have grandchildren!
The turning twelve quilt fabrics are lovely...and don't sell yourself short....I am sure you will quilt it just beautifully!
I will look forward to seeing it finished.

I'm gonna have to go find that magazine. Turning Twelve fabrics look fun and happy... perfect for a 4yrs. old.

Hi, Candace..I like your fabric but I have a question. I have never heard of a Turning 12 quilt. Is that the same as a Turning 20 and your just using 12 fabrics to make it smaller? Or, is there a pattern for a turning 12?
I agree with Vanessa, you will probably do a wonderful job. Hugs, Linda
