A simple finish…………….

On this (now turned ‘drippy’) Thursday, there is a sweet little quilt ready to be boxed and mailed to Indiana. (more on its previous steps here) IMG_1309 (2) The border stitching combined gentle loops with flowers that took their cue from the center area. It’s a “cuddle quilt” for this newborn young’n and will be washed much. I always do a quick run through the wash/dryer so it will be fresh for the recipient. Some close-ups………
