    Hi!! I recently just learned how to quilt fr my grandmother who has been quilting around me my entire life. I just finished my first full size quilt and I have to say I’m addicted. I recently graduated college and have student loans to pay for so I really don’t have a lot of extra money to spend on my new hobby. Winning this fabric would be such an appreciated gift. I love your patterns and plan to attempt the lemon squares quilt next. I look forward to seeing more from your site. =)
