My latest project

Wanted to make a quilt for my brother's girlfriend who was having a special birthday -- I'll be having the same one later this year. I used Carol Doak's Rays of Hope quilt free on her web site. Joya's favorite colors are blue and purple (according to my brother). Hopefully she likes the quilt. I was able to get the whole thing done in a day, except for the binding. I added the binding the next day and rounded the edges (a first for me) and was able to get it all sewn and delivered when I met them for lunch before they went back to NY. Did the quilting myself and added hearts (since he said she liked hearts) to the corners as well. Came out pretty good.
