My first quilt finish for 2011!

Took me long enough but I finally got a quilt finished. This is the one I worked on up in Big Bear with my girlfriends last month. So yay for me!!
The blocks are from a swap we did several years ago on Backporch Friends, a Yahoo quilt group. I was going to keep this one but my friend Nora saw it and practically drooled on it so I'm going to give it to her for her birthday in June. Now if I can just keep from misplacing it between now and then!!!

This is the label I made and stitched on last night. I love how easy it is to make quilt labels with
Printed Treasure sheets.
One down..........so many to go!!!

What a beautiful quilt that is... and if your friend doesn't get all teary-eyed when she reads that touching label, then she's a better woman that I, Gunga Din!
