  1. It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. The quilt turned out great. I can't believe how quickly you created it. And, I'm so glad you had a wonderful dinner with good friends this weekend. Miss you lots.

  2. Crystal, The quilt looks fabulous! I'm sure they were so happy to receive it. Hope you had a great week-end too.

    Mom, the quilt looks AWESOME! I can't believe you put it together so fast! WTG! It will be a keepsake for them for years, I'm sure.
    Beautiful list, as always. Love you!
