    Found out Saturday morning that a friend was having outpatient surgery today - and we all know that after surgery of any sort we need something to curl up under! So I finished this quilt yesterday morning and gave it to her yesterday afternoon- it was pieced and intended as a practice quilt but I'm so happy with the way it turned out and it's my first machine quilted project. It's backed and bound with minky. (all went well with her and she's home sleeping now) :thumbup:

    Great job on the quilt. It's beautiful, and I'm sure your friend is loving it. I'm loving all these blue/white quilts people have been posting.

    That's a very pretty quilt. I'm sure she will feel alot better having it to curl up with. By the way, it sure doesn't look like a practice quilt!!
