Love & Live, Better

I requilted the border on Tonya's quilt. I like it a lot better. Basically I used the same color thread as the border. It's quilted by eye, in keeping with the general wonkiness. It isn't perfect, but I'm happy.



Next time I see Chris, I'm going to kiss her feet.

You are just too funny! I haven't been spending much time on my computer lately, but I just pulled this post up and I have to say, I love it! If it was perfect,it would not be so charming. Personally, it looks perfect to me, wonderful job and give yourself credit for such a great job!!!! When I pulled up your blog, this quilt jumped out and made me smile right off the bart! Isn't that what is all about, anyway?? Great quilt!
