Quilt for Joanie



Thanks to all of you who donated Ohio Star blocks for Joanie's quilt. I apologize that I could not use them all in this top. I still might make her a pillow with some of the others... and I probably have enough to make a Sunshine quilt, too! People were very generous. Thanks so much!

Here's a close-up of the border fabric. I love how it picks up so many of the colors in the blocks!



Mary has kindly agreed to quilt this for us, even though she's very busy with a pile of other quilts to do. Thank you, Mary! (I'll deliver the top to Mary this weekend.)

Such a lovely quilt! And that dragonfly fabric is a favorite of mine (I have some too!).

You've been busy, I can't believe you've got a top pieced with the extra blocks already. It was nice meeting in person (briefly!).
