So the top is nearing


completion and we think its pretty spectacular...but then we would:>

this is a queen sized top and will be off to our friend Judy to quilt tomorrow....and may even have the binding sewn on it by this weekend...who would have thought it would get done that fast. It was a monumental effort...it took 11 people on one sunday afternoon, four people the next sunday and nine people last sunday PLUS quite a bit of homework on the part of some of the people to get it to this point. Ille will be sewing on the borders today...they are all buttonhole stitched in Navy blue now..that took me three hours just to do mine...the right hand border...

I told them anymore birthday quilts had to be started WELL ahead of the deadline....no more lets do it a month ahead of time...
