    Hi, I had a post showing my fabric asking for help deciding what to do. I wanted to do either a D9P or Blue Betty from april 2009 quilt magazine. We all agreed Blue Betty was the right one.

    Well, I didn't have enough of one color so I substituted some white I had left from another projecte. I think it really makes it "sparkle."

    I made this for my Great Aunt who will be either 87 or 88 this week. We are traveling to knoxville tennesse area to see her and my sister. We are cruising down the interstate as I type! :)
    Thanks for the help and thanks for looking!!

    here it is before i quilted had to show my little helper Boo

    Well, I don't know how happy she will be. Lol. She told my sister she didn't know why we were driving 700 miles just to visit. :) she so cantankerous. Lol. But at her age, she can be anything she wants!

    They just don't want you to know how much they like you doing it just to come see her. Their generation. You did an awesome job on her gift!
    Regards, Dorothy

    That is one awesome quilt. Your color choices are magnificent. Will probably have to put that one on my QBL (quilt bucket list). Thanks so much for sharing. Maybe getting that quilt will cheer up your aunt. Tell her happy birthday from all of us.....
