    favorite poem..Outwitted by Edwin Markham...He drew a circle that shut us out..heretic, rebel a thing to flout.
    But Love and I had the wit to win,
    We drew a circle that took him in!

    Wow, can't believe she's only 12. It's very pretty. I wouldn't have even attempted FMQ. Her girlfriend will be delighted!

    This is such a wonderful idea to keep an album for her. It will bring back such precious memories for her in the future.

    Grammatjr - I commented way back on page 5 and opened this thread today to see if there were additional comments. Only five more pages of praise for pretty Avianna and her lovely quilt. Today is Thursday, the day you said she'd be giving her friend the quilt. Please start a NEW THREAD to let us know how her friend reacted. You could put the name Avianna in the subject so those of us who wrote would know this is the followup. Thanks.
