We have very little in common. The day we went to pick out the backing I found great multi colored polka dots and she found this. She picked the very calm backing.
I did a lot of straight line quilting and was very pleased with the outcome.
Since she knew about the quilt I had to do something as a surprise. She said she wanted to get a new, white bedspread and she plans on using this quilt at the foot of the bed to give the room a shot of color.
I decided that some throw pillows (16 inch) would be perfect.
I had left over black and white strips from the top and several of the PoP's of color still hanging around. They worked up perfectly. I dropped all of the above off at her house this morning. I know she was thrilled with the quilt and i think she was just as thrilled with the pillows. Happy Birthday Baby Sister!
Last but not least,
To All of my American visitors have a safe and happy 4th.
