I met with my friend Dina to finish her t shirt quilt.She is putting it together for her SIL who recently lost her husband. We met last month and got the top pieced (read about it here).I told her she could get the back ready by piecing the flannel, but she was nervous about it. When I arrived she had cut it one inch bigger than than the top. Good thing she had extra. We pinned and stitched in the ditch and it came out great. She almost doesn't want to give it away. I don't blame her it is hard to part with your first quilt. However she baked me a bunch at great cookies(thanks Dina) and a thank you card that implies that this is just the beginning. Yea, a new quilter!
