    Absolutely beautiful quilt! I could only live long enough to make something of that beauty...I know your friend will be so happy. Very kind of you to do this for your friend. You just earned another star in your heavenly crown.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    It's lovely! Nice job!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Very elegant! It's plain pattern screams elegant! Love that it's reversible and I love the backing. The roses set on the white background are absolutely beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

    wow so nice. I do much hand work sure know how much it takes. Worth it though.

Pecos is listed as Home of the World's First Rodeo. I am going to deliver her quilt tomorrow.
    I fussy cut, then machine appliqued each rose on the front. The front is cream colored. The backing is made from two pima cotton sea foam green sheets, that she chose. The quilt is reversible and I do hate hand work, but it is necessary when doing a reversible quilt, there is roughly 269 feet of hand work on this quilt.
    I do hope I can get a picture of this quilt posted. Wish me luck, Well it looks like both pictures are going to post. The first picture is the back of the quilt. Thanks for gazing at my some of my work.Gerbie

    Jaw-dropping, love the yellow and pink roses, your placement, the quilting. Very cool and streamlined, is this an original design?
