    Square in a square front

    I'll try to post a pic of the back, as we used the left overs from the front. This was pieced by Ava, Paula and me for Milat, a friend. Ava pieced hers by hand. It was 100" x 110" as you can see the last few inches got cut off as I didn't start it a few inches higher and I ran out of backing. I'm alright with it though. It's not perfect, but it will provide warmth to her heart and soul. DH said "Vanilla, chocolate and strawberry" when he saw it.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I agree with Lynnie. Reminds me of Chocolate covered cherries. It is really a very attractive quilt with the fabrics you used.

    Very pretty quilt. Love your husband's name for it. The 'shortened' squares are so she knows which end to put the pillows on!

    I work in a hospital. That was inside our break room. The stockings are hung in the hallway at work! Thank goodness I don't have to fill all those stockings!

    I'm just nuts about 2-sided quilts. Yours is wonderful - I can't even pick a favorite side - it's a tie!
