Mill's Girls Top finally Finished!

After a few months and a lot of mistakes, I've finally finished the top.  I don't think I like working with batiks.  They're very slippery.  Next time, I'll have to try using starch to help hold them still while I sew them together. I also helped my daughter finish up her community service project.  She sewed a row quilt together for the local fire department.  You should have seen her face when I told her I wasn't going to help her sew on the binding. I showed her a few stitches and sent her on her own.  What a great job she did!
