I started this quilt a while ago (like May of 2009) for my friend Debbie. The 20 completed squares sat on my table. When she confirmed a few months ago that she'd be visiting in the Fall I decided it would be great to be able to hand her the quilt when she was here. And the completed squares sat on my table. A few weeks ago I finally sewed the 20 squares together and sent it off to the machine quilting lady in Iowa. I got the quilt back last Friday, finished the binding on Saturday, washed it so it was all crinkly and last night when Debbie arrived, I handed her the quilt. She loves it.
