It is quilted and Earl helped



The first photo is of Earl Grey. It just appeared on the camera when I went to download the picture of the quilt to the computer. My son must have taken the photo, or maybe the house elf. Who knows. It is cute though. As far as the quilt goes, it is quilted, but not hemmed. I used the "swirl" pattern and orange/rust thread to match the backing and is about 60 X 72. Just a good cover-up size. I'm going to hang onto it awhile and just look at it. As much trouble as it was to find the last Fat Quarter, I hate to give it away right now. I hope to get the St. Jude quilts quilted soon, but as long as it is so cold in my office trailer it is difficult. The machine won't work until I get the room warmed up! No more robin-sightings, oh well...

It's lovely. I really like the rust-red fabrics.
I don't blame you for wanting to hang onto it a bit :)

Blessings,
Sue

Earl is so big now, and seems to be very healthy. I love the stitching you chose for this quilt it turned out lovely and I would not want to give it away either.

You are SO right. If we had a play-date we wouldn't know which grey sweetheart was which. Karmen
