    This one is for my grandmother's 75th Birthday tomorrow. I made it out of my 2" strip stash. It is backed and bordered with some Halloween fabric I bought last year. I figured it would eventually make a nice back so I bought ALOT of it. Strangely it seemed to fit this small quilt perfectly. Also this was my first use of my FMQ foot. I think it turned out well...

    Thanks. :) I ment it to turn out bigger but the planning kinda fell through. I was working on an applique one that didn't turn out and this was a last minute one. Only took me about 6 hours though :)

    She was so happy. Her face just lit up when she saw the quilt. My grandmother knows I make quilts and wanted one but I was waiting until I got a bit better before I made hers. :)
