    I think they will love it, at least I hope so.

    I'd like to know, please, what font/alpha (and size!) you used to ME the label (I have a Bernina 340 deco, made my first quilt label by ME - a year ago already!)
    luv, Liz / Calgary

    Very nice quilt and gift for your daughter's friend. You are right "what we do for our kids". But it also makes you feel good when they ask for a quilt because you know how much they like what you do. A little more time would have been nice. lol

    Lovely job and the couple will surely be thrilled with it. I know what you mean about mom's stash of quilts. I too have given quilts as gifts to people I have never met!

    I like the quilt - and yes, we sometimes do jump through hoops (or make quilts) because our kids asked us to!

    The black diagonals and sashing really makes this quilt outstanding.

    Yes, we do lots for our kids. And it sounds like you had fun time doing this good deed. I'm still saving strings and hope to do a quilt like this soon. Hope mine turns out as nice as yours did. The happy couple is sure to love it.

    P.S. You're a great mom!

    Great looking quilt, they are going to love it. I love making string quilts and think that using the same color in the center of each block and for the sashing like you did really makes the scrappy strips sparkle. Great work, May in Jersey
