a village grows

Remember this quilt???

The new owner wanted it to be twin size....

so it had to grow...
 I added a simple border today.
I'm so happy this quilt found a good home!!!
It's going to a lady who has been "looking out"
for my friend's college age daughter in far away Austria!!
(This even involved trips to the doctor!!)

She wants to give her a nice thank you gift.
I'm so pleased she chose this quilt!!!!


Now just take a look at the fabric I found for the backing!!!
Alexander Henry.
Mmmm...I don't usually brag about brands...
but this one is so  nice!!
You can tell it's QUALITY fabric.
Plus....The color and design JUST FIT this quilt to a "T".

O.K.
I've now got a backlog of quilts to quilt!!!!
Should I read more blogs...
Make comments on blogs.....
Make comments on comments.....
Or....
Do the right thing...and.....
Quilt????

I'm linking up with sarah today!
