Btw, in case you are curious, I am using a very dark shade of gray on the black borders. It shows the quilting just a bit more, and I can see where I am going. The last kimono quilt I did was quilted with black thread and so it made my life more difficult.

Quote seen on a SUV: “Hire a Teenager while they still know it all.”
For those of you who laugh and understand this phrase, you are probably already through the teenage years. Many of you have teenagers at home, so you also get it. The teenage years can be a tough time for parents, that’s for sure.
Karen is working on her psychology masters, and has a quick 2 minute questionnaire for you to answer. You can answer it here, or on Karen’s blog. If you don’t want to answer in a public forum, leave me a comment and I’ll email you privately.
Participating would help Karen out in her class. I hope you will participate. Thanks from Carla and Karen’s short questionnaire follows:
1. Who do you believe has more influence on adolescents (Ages 12 – 17)
