I am a quilter - a retired widow living in the Nebraska Panhandle. I am surrounded by beautiful semi-arid ranch country, and treeless hills and fields under incredibly wide blue skies, located far from the upheaval found often in large towns or cities. I am blessed to have delicious time to quilt and to appreciate my peaceful moments in an unpeaceful world.

"Pinkalicious". (I always name my quilts - this one was easy!) I pulled all my bits of pink, some with little girly motifs. Some little girl will love it! I DID purchase the border fabric, which is all very small overlapping boxes, so I machine quilted overlapping boxes, something I've always wanted to try. My boxes don't follow the fabric motifs, but they turned out well, and very textured. I used the round plastic guilting foot - a great help. At the very end of the border quilting job, I quilted one giant swirl, in the border, just to be obstinate!
