ABC 123!!

I finished this quilt up today, label and all, three weeks before my granddaughter's birthday! Woohoo!

This was a class I took about a year and a half ago with Sharon Wright.  She uses this basic Allegro pattern, designs her own borders and pieces the backs.  It is a nice, fairly easy pattern and you can use a lot of fun fabrics. My border is fairly simple compared to the borders she designs!  She is a great teacher and the class was awesome.

Here is my pieced back - with some fun princess fabric!  I used wool batting this time - I like it!

Today one of my good friends was sworn in as an American citizen in a Naturalization Ceremony on the CO National Monument.  It was really awesome to go and be a part of it!  38 people in Grand Junction became citizens from 22 different countries! The judge said that since this is Constitution Week, there are 200 of these ceremonies taking place all over the country with over 300,000 people becoming new citizens.  Very cool :)
