I followed what Sue did for the most part.

For some reason, my quilting doesn't show up in most of the pictures I took because I quilted with Bottom Line, which is a very thin thread.

Thanks, Margo, and yes, the furry gray quilting inspector takes immediate possession of all quilts just as soon as enough blocks are sewn together to get her little body on them. She prefers them with batting and backing, but just a top will do in a pinch! :)
