Views: 2713
Size:  179.5 KBfinished this one recently as a surprise friendship quilt. special thanks to all who donated blocks for this quilt. Our recently departed Nexxus831 donated two blocks ---they are the first and third blocks in top row reading from left to right. I requested donations starting in August and was able to get top completed and on my frame by November first. I averaged roughly a block a day and completed the quilt on December 3. I ill be mailing this beauty to its new home on Monday

    Absolutely beautiful... I love how each block is different yet the fabrics bring it all together into a beautiful work of art. Thank you for sharing photos and the story.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.
