Sadly, Joan is losing her vision which means she has to give up quilting. When I saw her a few months ago at Day Quilters she asked each of us to take what we wanted of her fabrics and UFOs. I came home with this scrappy little 35" top.
She thought I could make it into a doll quilt, but I decided to turn it into a "Joan Quilt". Scrappy it began so scrappier it would become. I just grabbed some scraps .....
..... and black & white prints, then kept making borders until I thought it was done.
Of course, it definitely needed Scottie dog fabric on the back because Joan really, really loves Scottie dogs.
It finished up about 53" square and pretty cute, I think.
Now it's washed and dried and has that comfy, crinkly look every quilt looks better with .....
..... which means it's ready to mail. I hope it brings up a lot of sweet memories for Joan when she uses it. I know it did that for me while I worked on it.
