    Quilt for Tessa

    Finished up this top yesterday and was called into work today. This is for my Grand niece. My brother died before he met her. I'll have to quilt it on the weekend now. Sigh!
    Bought a lovely kit but decided I didn't like all the fabric. So I substitued PINKS.

    Love the way you incorporated pink into the red, white, and blue. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Fascinating design...I LIKE it! I think the pink works well with the other colors, too.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
