    "Under the sea" Fons and Porter pattern finished completely

    I got the hand quilting finished, machine meandered the border, wrapped it all up and gave it to my daughter and her husband for Christmas/Wedding present. In opening the packing tape holding box shut, the tip of the very sharp scissors scored a three inch mark across one of the big blue squares and one of the small squares. i managed to unsew the small one and replace it with another by hand, and then appliqued a piece of the blue over the blue. The pictures are large because they are copies of what she posted on her FB. I did three different hand quilting designs.

    They learned not to open taped packages with scissor blades. Thankfully Mom quilters can fix quilt mistakes

    Very beautiful quilt. Your DD will cherish it.
    Got fabric?

    Wow I just sent a quilt to my Sister and didn't even think about her opening it with a knife or scissors. Glad to hear you were able to repair the damage. Gorgeous quilt.
