Annette's Quilt

Annette will be living in a dorm when she goes to college in the Fall. I'm going to make her a dorm quilt. She asked for blue-greens: something to remind her of the ocean and the times she has spent here with me. She selected the pattern and I selected the fabric. Robin and I went on a Spring Shop Hop on Friday and I used the opportunity to buy a little fabric from each of the eight shops we visited.

Today I cut out the fabric and am all ready to go.

The red pinwheel quilt will be on hold until this is done. It's all for a good cause, don't you think? Happy quilting.
