    I finally got the top done for the bowling quilt for Josh for Christmas. I think it turned out OK. The lime green wasn't my favorite, but it is his favorite color. What do you think.

    I like the lime green! It gives it a little extra something special. Very nice quilt.

    Funny story about this quilt. Last year I helped make Josh a fleece blanket. DD said it had to be king size. So this year I'm making to quilt and of course made it king size. DD looks at it and says "Boy that's really big. Didn't I tell you his bed is a full." Couldn't believe I made this huge quilt (108x108 ) and could have made a smaller one. Oh well, when they get married maybe they will use her queen size bed. All I could do was laugh.

    Love it, and the lime frame, especially like the cornerstones (?) done in lime green, really is effective, just right. Great job, he will love it.
