    Quilt for a Friend

    I made this quilt for my friend Shelly's birthday in October. I just finished it this evening; it took so long as I ordered some fabrics from the States and they took longer to arrive than I thought. I didn't follow a pattern, I just picked colours that I know she likes. Thanks for looking!

    What a lovely gift; your friend will be thrilled. Great fabric choices and nice workmanship. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    I sure do like this one. Like the way you used the border print in some of the blocks, looks good.

    Great color combinations and I would call this quilt "serene".

    Beautiful quilt-love the colors!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
