A QUILT FIT FOR A FIRST LADY

Isn't this quilt stunning!  When I asked Misti what she's been working on, she sent me this picture.  This is what she said,
  • "Well there is progress being made on my “first lady’s” quilt.  I added a border after this was taken and then there are 4 more borders to go around the entire quilt before its finally finished.  This one will end up 102” by 102”, should be a nice quilt for our bed."
Misti is a real go-getter and I know if I need a picture to post, she will have something new.  She also said,
  • "I’m making matching table toppers for the night stands and dressers also.  Lots of left-over scraps to be able to do that.  I played catch up on some BOM’s this weekend so that was nice.  Once I can get this quilt out of the way I can finish up a couple other projects before starting my next one."
Thanks Misti for sharing with us.  I always love seeing your beautiful work.
