    Beautiful quilt and I think using the yellow for the binding was a smart move! And.. you made me look up a new word.. "derecho".

    You deserve a gold star to survive this heat, with no power. We had five days of no power either. I was not productive. Nice quilt.

    Really nice!!! The inner yellow border makes your quilt pop. Love what you've done!

    We visited West Virginia a week after the derecho, and I have to say those people work hard. I thought we would see where the storm hit, however, we saw very little of the destruction. Just about everything was cleaned up. I hope you fared well in all the heat and downed trees.

    I agree you made a very wise decision to add the yellow inner boarder and change the binding color.

    Beautiful quilt. You must live close to me cause we were without power for five days. Don't want to do that again.
