    A few weeks ago I posted a picture and asked you all for help. I was given a bag with quilt blocks that had been started by someone in 1983. She pasted away 3 years ago and her husband just now found the quilt blocks. Their daughter is now getting married in Oct. and I was asked to finish the quilt as a present for their daughter.
    Below is the quilt and the picture of the gray boarder is a dragonfly. That is how she signed all of her projects, so I did dragonfly's all around the boarder. The heart is what is in all the white blocks and she did that part as well.

    I can just imagine how the bride will feel when she gets that beautiful quilt. You did a great job of piecing and quilting.
