Most of my friends visit me via my back door.  When I knew my granddaughter and her BFF would be visiting, I thought it would be a great opportunity to update the tired, and now worn “rug” I had painted twelve years ago.  It became quite a process.  An original design was scrapped for a more tropical theme.

Thank you Maddie and Ashley.  It puts a smile on my face every time I
walk up to the back door.

Quilt happy,
