  1. It is just beautiful, Jacqueline. It just looks like summer!

  2. I love your quilt! I still haven't started hand quilting my table topper. I have a hoop now - but I just realised that my wool batting is not big enough for the quilt. What kind of batting do you use when you hand quilt?

  3. Such a beautiful quilt–perfect for lying on in the sunshine.
