    Your quilt is so pretty. I must learn how to do one of those at least before I die. Bucket list...

    That is so pretty! Was the border fabric used to make the blocks? It turned out very nice.

    I always say if it is purple it must be beautiful. It is really sharp. It is so fun to look at the individual blocks. Stack and whack is so fun. I love seeing them.

    Wow! It looks like the night sky somehow. Just beautiful. You all may convince me to try stack and whack sometime.

    Such yummy colors!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Yes the one border was what the blocks were from. I love these. Like Forrest Gump said, you never know what you'll get

    I bet he loves it! Is the border fabric the original fabric. Thanks for sharing.

    His quilt is beautiful. What a lovely retirement gift.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
