I didn't even remember that it was I who had made it months before, because we make so many.

    I just made the upper right - the back has the all over coordinate fabric of bunnies.

    Last summer - floating down the mighty Mississippi - it was awesome!

Some of the girls LOVE thrift shops, and there are several good ones. I'm always on the look out for old interesting sewing things, especially pin cushions.
    QuiltnCowgirl - bad news about the fabulous trim shop. It's CLOSED on Mondays! They are only open on Wed - Sat. She has an e-bay store: http://stores.ebay.com/trimsandribbons

    I asked on the main board for suggestions for a pattern to use. Ended up making 12" squares (to save the nice big quitar design) I'm waiting for a piece i ordered online to use as a border. You can take a look at all the suggestions here:
