That did the trick Terri. It looks great! I can see the border being the pink floral in the top row middle Sue. What do you think? Can't wait to see it finished. The little gals will love them!

Terri-I have been out of it lately and have just now read your 2 Sunbonnet Sue threads. What a great quilt you have made! I would never have thought to put the dark sashing around the window blocks. What great ladies we have here to help you with those suggestions. And you picked such a great color. The quilt is just adorable and I know the young lady that gets it will treasure it always. You are a great friend to their mom!

Thanks all!
I don't have enough of that pink floral on the top to make a border. I got that fabric at Walmart a long while ago. It's nice and soft and I would use it sparingly in different quilts I made. Would love to find more of it, but there is not more :(
Maybe if I look hard enough in my stash, I might fine enough to maybe do a 2" border around the burgundy.

No one has yet to mention the purple one on the last row facing the wrong way. That was done intentionally. I will embroider the other one's name on that one in smaller letters. These 2 little girls are very close and the bond between them is awesome. I hope as they get older, the bond stays that way.

It was funny, I was talking to the mom the other day and she just blurted out...I just realized, you are the SAME age as my mom!
I wanted to reach in and strangle her! lol Yes, she is only 28. (My Lauren will be 27 this year. lol)
But, she's a good friend, sweet girl and a really good mom.
She has no clue I am making these for her girls.

LOL!! There is just nothing like youth to make you feel old!!! I am sure that she meant it in a great way-like, "you are such a great friend, I never thought about the age difference before!!"

You are a dear to make quilts for her daughters and I know all three of them are going to be very touched by your generosity and thoughtfulness.

She is a great friend. I don't think of her as younger, just that she has a bit more energy than I do. lol

The first one is almost done! Only 3 more sides to do and voila!!
