My girlfriend Gerri and I made this quilt for our friend Nancy. She is always putting others before herself so we just wanted to surprise her with something just for her. We told her it's because she is so much nicer then we are! haha
The pattern is "Twirling Triangles" by Fons & Porter (not very good directions by the way!)
Gerri cut all of the triangles(I cut a few but not many!), we both pieced it and I quilted it. It was a job but Nancy's reaction made it so worth it!
P.S. Both of these ladies are QB members so hope they see the pictures!

Nancy's reaction when she figured out that it was her quilt!

Who's Nancy? She was reading the lable and didn't realize she WAS the Nancy! Gerri is in the background.
