    I used Eleanor Burns Egg Money Quilts book for the pattern. I think it came out nicely. Here are some pics of it.

    They really were very easy to make. I didn't do the rickrack thing. I just used binding tape. Very easy to work with!! I recommend making them. They would be so happy to get one.

    Gosh Henry ... That is so nice! I remember when you bought this fabric last year. I love what you have done here with it. Great job.

    Edited to say .. Holy Smokes henry! I didn't see all the others before I posted. You are really going to town there! I know you didn't ask, but, Buy yourself a bias tape maker, you will love it and then you can match up the fabrics. Not that it doesn't look great now, but they are so fun to work with. It gives you choices of what the edges will look like. (They are cheap a couple bucks)
