Joyful and triumphant!!

I love that old Christmas hymn, Oh Come, All Ye Faithful...most of you know the words. But today! Those words apply to the fact that the little miniature nine-patch is done, well, in one piece anyhow! I just posted this afternoon, but I just had to share this picture too. The quilt is 18 inches by 24 inches. Each little piece is 1/2 inch square. I am astonished that I did this. The piecing is not perfect, but I gave it my very best effort. Lots of seams! The border took most of the fabric, which was surprising, but just as much fabric is in seam allowances as shows on the front. A big thanks to Libby for letting me make a version of her very special quilt. Thanks for letting me share this little distraction with you!

Julie,

This is so pretty.

You have every right to be joyful and feel triumphant about this accomplishment.

What are you going to do with it now? hand quilt it or what...frame it when you are through?

If you work this weekend...here is hoping all your patients are nice!

Just north in Oklahoma

I procure recently bought a used laptop that is old. The himself I had bought it from had installed windows xp on it, regular though it originally came with windows Me. I fall short of to eradicate the windows xp because it runs slows on the laptop because it takes up more honour than the windows Me would. Also I paucity to massacre windows xp because it is an illegal copy. So when I tried to stir one's stumps updates on it, windows would not initiate updates because the windows xp is not genuine.
