Kashmir Quilt...

It's done!

So, I'll take it to work today.
Geri hasn't asked, and I haven't
volunteered any information
on how this quilt for her sister
was coming along.
She might be surprised.

I had originally planned to have
it done last week, but running
out of thread while quilting 
really threw me off schedule.

No matter.
It's done now.
It's just a simple 9-patch,
but I am in love.

And, very happy that
I have enough of this fabric
to make myself a quilt.

Here it is...all crinkly soft 
(not the best colors...the sun was really bright)

 I'll try to remember to take
photos at work with Geri.

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with all thy might. - Ecclesiastes 9:10
