    We have neighbors, who over the years, have become dear friends. There's nothing they won't do for us so I thought they needed a quilt. The quilt is named Windmills because of the pattern and after the zillion windmills we have here in our little town. I matched the colors as close as possible to their living room furniture and Marcia tells me she uses the quilt almost every night while watching TV or reading. To me that's what quilting is all about!

    Beautiful quilt and what a thoughtful gift for someone who probably never asked for anything for helping you out when you needed them.
