Long-time family friends - and I mean this family and ours go back a couple of generations - asked me earlier this year to make a quilt to honor daughter Elizabeth's 40th birthday. That happened a while back, and the quilt didn't. But it is done now, and I will share today.
I had been dragging my feet on how I would quilt this. (Proof) I have the backs of two nylon cheerleader jackets, the front of one cheerleader top, a baby dress, a squishy doll front, and a pocket to contend with. It was just too much to ask a long-arm quilter to deal with, so I determined that I would do it myself, but how??? Finally, I decided to just quilt in the sashing and borders. It is finished, at last, and it went rather quickly. It certainly won't win any prizes for exceptional workmanship, but I think the owners will be pleased with it.

Okay, that's all for today, Peeps. I have another t-shirt quilt to get busy on!
I am linking up with Finish It Up Friday - have a look at some other of this week's finishes.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
