Oct 20: The quilt was left in the mailbox.
Oct 22: Several of us had a bit of a scare when the quilt tracked to me but I hadn't received. Turns out the box was just barely able to slip into the mailbox. Since it was cube shaped only slightly larger than others I have received lately, it wasn't particularly memorable to any of the postal workers. Alas all is well. Maybe I should have opened the box before saying it was here--it might never have turned up! That is my way of saying it is adorable no matter what shade it photographs. And some of that fabric on the backing is very familiar.
Oct 26: For several days, Grace has been exploring pattern options. I haven't been helping any because every time I get an idea of what she likes I show her similar options. I think she has settled on Spiral Braid & now has to figure out what density she wants. Of course I have now done an EQ7 rendition and multiple overlays.
Oct 27: It is settled--12 rows with each one 4.2".
Oct 30: Decided to get up early rather than work late last night. Prepped, loaded, quilted. Will try for better backing photo tomorrow.
Oct 31: Final pics. Shipped.
