I hate to single anyone out so if you want to do this consider yourself tagged!  I hope you enjoy what you learned.

Last year for my birthday, my friend, Ellen, gave me a quilt, all cut out and the pattern to make it with.  I loved it but it has been put aside.  I got it out on Sunday and made the top.  I then pulled from the stash and made a back.  I had enough of the red inner border (from my stash) to make the binding so I have that all ready too.  I will put up a picture when I get it back from Liz, unless she will hold it up for me before she takes it today.  It was much too dark to take a picture last night.  I have decided that I will work my way through the projects I have in the baskets and bags upstairs before anything else new.  I have lots of things I bought to make a certain quilt with and this year will be that year.  I want to get as many of those done as possible.  Most of them are for family so that will be a good thing.  Photo to follow soon, I hope!

Edit:  I finally got someone to hold the top so here is a photo of it and a close up.  It is from the Take 5 pattern.  I think it turned out quite well.
