Forever Flowers Top Finished!

It's just the top and it's not quilted, but it's finished--I just put the last border on!!!--Fresh from the sewing machine! I think this one is going to go to a long arm quilter to be quilted so that the applique will stand out--I don't want to quilt over the applique--and I'm not confident enough on the Little Gracie to quilt this one and Maynard is just comfortable with pantograms which won't work on this one either!!!It feels good to mark another one off the list!

Maynard won 2 tickets to a college tournament basketball game at American Airlines Center in Dallas through a TV station promotion, so we will be spending Saturday afternoon there. Doesn't that sound like fun? We will see Texas Tech and Stanford play. Seeing how we are from Indiana it will be interesting to see Bobby Knight in action again!!!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Jan, that is a perfectly gorgeous quilt top! You did a great job on it. Hope you enjoy the basketball. If your seats are down close to Bobby Knight, watch out! He has been known to throw chairs, you know.

You top is beautiful, like I knew it would be. So good you get to go see basketball. We follow the Maryland Terapins and most of the ACC.

Sheryl--we'll be very careful around Bobby--although he hasn't been pulling so many of these stunts with Texas Tech--maybe age is mellowing him--???? LOL!!
