What a wonderful thing you have done (twice, in fact). These beautiful quilts will mean so much, more than words could ever express.

Those are beautiful, she will just love them! You did a wonderful job picking out patterns, they really complement the fabrics you had to use. The piecing looks so precise, too! Two big thumbs up!

However, after finishing the first queen size quilt, I still had several good size pieces of fabric from the shirts, so I was able to make her a second quilt...she has not seen either of them, so I am going to wait until I get them back from the LAQ, hope she will be happy with them.
What a lovely thing to do for her! The quilts are beautiful, too.
