(I think the pink/orange fabric may be a Kaffe Fassett ) She did all the cutting and piecing herself. During the construction of it, she decided to make it longer which meant she didn't have enough length for her border fabric. I showed her how to cut it so the pattern matches and she did a great job. You can't even tell where the join is : ) Pretty great for a first quilt I'd say.
It still needs it's binding, but that might take some "encouragement". I love doing binding so I may end up doing it.
I think she may have caught the bug because she's now finished her second top! I'm not sure if there's room in my budget for two quilters........
Thanksgiving is always a time to reflect on how blessed we are.
