    Surprise for my daughter- A lil out there

    Finished this quilt top this morning (60x60) and it's a suprise for her when she moves back to Dallas.
    She likes Dia de Los Muertos, skulls, dogs, Pittsburgh Steeler and other stuff. I know she is going to love it. I am planning to put border around it to make it a big bigger. Thanks for looking

    I love the colors. She'll love it too.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I agree...a lil out there, but if that's what she likes, then that's what she likes! It's actually very bright and cheerful looking!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Well here is the final product. I probably should have done SID because the FMQ wasn't too great but what I do know is that my daughter will be surprised and love it. Practice makes perfect right? Guess I better start thinking of my next project! Thanks for all the encouraging words.
