SOUTHERN BELLE'S QUILT

This is Donna's (from Brady) first quilt.  A friend of hers gave Donna these embroidered Southern Belle ladies blocks and told her to do something with them.  This is Donna's creativity.  At first I wasn't so sure about the really wide borders on the sides.  But I have to tell myself this isn't my quilt, I don't have to like everything that I quilt for others, although it does help if you do.  Anyway, the longer I worked with it the more I liked it and decided that it wasn't so bad after all.  I measured the center section and it just fits on the mattress top of a queen size mattress.  You know what?  I bet Donna planned it like that!  Haha!  It turned out very nice I think and Donna seemed super duper happy with the finished quilting.  She is anxious to get it home and get the binding on it.Sorry for the not so good picture.  My other quilt holder was out of town and this quilt holder's arms weren't long enough to stretch it completely out.

Wide, really wide borders.
  And Southern Belle blocks.

And the back was pretty too.
