Default Kevin and Julie

Triple Irish Chain, I wanted something old-fashioned as that is the type of girl Julie is. With more modern colors for Kevin. Machine pieced and hand quilted. (I really was going to machine quilt it ( I did), get it out the door before Christmas, didn't happen and it took 2 days to take out the machine stitches!) LOL, but that is OK, I love it now and if they don't, I'll gladly take it back!! In the mail tomorrow as a belated Christmas gift LOL

I took my first class in January 2012, this is my 27th quilt!! Retirement is great LOL

Wonderful quilt! Love your backing! and your idea to use it for part of the blocks on the fronts. Also love that you put a label on it. Great work!!!

I don't think you will get this beautiful quilt back. Kevin & Julie will love this gorgeous quilt. Congratulations on your 27th quilt in such a short time. Enjoy your retirement!
