    What a great friend you are!! That took a lot of work. The quilt is quite lovely and the sweet lady seems to love it so much. As my Granny used to say "Just one more star in your crown of Heaven"
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    Beautiful and she obviously loves it

    The quilt is made with reproduction 1800ís fabrics in indigos and creams. (Blue is Rita's favorite color)

    We took it to Julie Degrave of Pines and Needles Quilting and she did a lovely allover quilting design, which I've tried to show in the close ups.

    Rita really loves it as you can see from her beautiful picture. She said she never in her life would have thought someone would make something like this for her.

    Thank you for all the kind words everyone.
    You all are right - Rita is beautiful...inside and out. She is one of the kindest, most caring people I've ever known. Her picture shows a lot of her personality. She almost always finds the fun in things.

    Dawn, there is one huge problem with this quilt.... I didn't get my act together in time to have you sew one of your gorgeous labels for it. LOL - they always feel like the crowning touch!

    I was happy how the quilt turned out. Always wanted to do a controlled scrappy log cabin. There have been some real beauties posted on the QB and it is inspiring. Can't wait to see yours Love to Sew!
