    Well, I finally got the top done, I like it better with the sashing in, she picked the colors. I am enclosing a close up of the quilting. You can still see the disapearing marker. I will add larger hearts to the squares. I hope to have it done soon but now the weather is warming up and I am less motivated to sit and hand quilt.

    I saw a mistake or two after I had it sewed and I didn't want to rip it out again so left it. Thanks for the encouragement!
