    Your story touched me dearly. You are a courageous woman for going back to the quilt to finish it. I know times like this, it hurts to go back and pick up where you left off. I'm sure her family would be honored. The quilt is going to be gorgeous!

    I'm sorry to hear you lost your friend. My uncle has had reoccuring brain tumors and I understand somewhat how hard that can be. You are an amazing person and her family will be so touched! It is beautiful and I am looking forward to seeing it all finished.

    Thank you all for your words of encouragement. I've been sewing away on the quilt, with still a lot to go. As I've been sewing, I've been thinking of Helen and her family. I know they are going to be very pleased. I've also been thinking of what words I will put on the quilt label. I have a lot of time to think about it, but there will be something about in honor of Helen. Don't know what else yet.

    I've been working on it most of the weekend and have the center pieced. Now for the border. I put some of the stripe (a smaller stripe than the flowers I used on the squares) and decided it didn't like it. So now it's coming off, going to put a 2" strip of the background in, then the stripe, then another 2" strip and then more 1/2 stars for the final border. It's looking great, but giving me fits.

    I just spent about an hour and a half un-sewing. Putting it up for the night and going on to something EASY!

    It always takes so much longer to reverse sew then it did when sewing the pieces together. I just spent a couple hours yesterday doing the same thing with a project I'm working on. I feel your pain.
