Once upon a time, way back when, I participated in a fall exchange with my Hearts and Hands Quilt group. I got as far as pinning my quilt together, but could not get it quilted before the deadline at our September 2009 meeting. It has been sitting in my basket ready to quilt at a moment's notice. We received an invitation to a wedding of a young friend, who has moved to PEI. The wedding was in PEI, but they traveled East and had a reception here. I was contemplating what kind of quilt to make for them, when I came across this quilt which I thought would suit Lydia's tastes very well. How handy was that to have it all pinned and ready to roll? I machine quilted it and found some red solid in my stash that matched the red piping and it was actually finished 2 days before the wedding :-).

It was very nice to get another UFO out of the basket and put to good use.
