    Last month I got to visit with an old friend I haven't seen in 8 yrs. Her house was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina (2005 ?) and she's just now got her new house built nad is about to move in so I wanted to make her something special. I dyed the fabrics for this, I ordered teal and truffle brown, it sure looks maroon to me but it still looks good together. I was hoping the curling ribbon border would look like the twisted wicker around a basket (it's staying whether it looks like it or not!) LOL

    Kathy your quilt is wonderful. Glad your friend is getting into her new home. Four year is a long time to wait.

    thank you all so much, you're really good for a girl's ego :wink:
    Gangles, no I didn't design the pattern, it's called weaver fever and it's by Jackie Robinson.
