...Tink, I barely knew you!

This has to be a record for me!  I purchased the fabric on Tuesday, pieced on Wednesday, quilted on Thursday, binding/ label on Friday and gifted Sunday!

and SHE LOVED IT!  Reactions like the Birthday Girl's are one of the reasons I quilt.  As soon as she opened the quilt she ran over to her Mom to show everyone at her table.  She was so excited!!

pattern source:  here   I adjusted the measurements to arrive at a slightly larger quilt.  The checker border finishes at 6 inches and I think I cut the inside panel at 40 x 58.  I knew I wanted the quilt to be close to 55 x 74 finished.  The Birthday Girl has a tall boyfriend!  :)
