    Cactus Wreath finished

    The block that was in backwards has been fixed & the table topper is now quilted. This is the first time I attempted scalloped borders. I used Eleanor Burns waves & scallops ruler to do this. Easy peasy! I'm really pleased with the results. I will be giving the topper to one of my granddaughters for her "Hope Chest."

    That is so beautiful. Being stationed down here in AZ really makes you get close to your inner cactus lover.

    Great job! Wanna be my grandma?

    Beautiful quilt and quilting - but oh the scalloped edges. I must bite the bullet and do the scalops some day (soon). I saw eleanor burns do them a few weeks back - but she makes everything look so easy.
    Happy Holidays!
