    A friend of mine opened up a beauty salon/gift shop so I wanted to make her a bright quilt to decorate her walls.
    The name of her shop is "Expressions" and I have that quilted all around the borders, but is difficult to see in these pix.

    Ooh, now you're in for it. If that beautiful quilt is hanging in a beauty salon/GIFT SHOP there will be customers who want one, and want you to make it!

    Beautiful. It reminded me of a song I think we sang in Sunday School,"brighten the corner where you are".

    Oh! man, Nonie, that quilt is just gorgeous. I love the colors, the layout, the whole thing is a piece of art. Good job. I bet Cheryl LOVES it! If I open a beauty salon would you like to make one just like that for my wall? I have a beauty license but will have to dust it off as I haven't used it in 30 years!

    :wink:

    She has told me that customers have asked about it, and that I should pin a card to it -- which I haven't done. So she flipped up the corner where I have the label.
