Q&A with Caraline2

Candace in Fl asked:
Looks beautiful, love your piano key border. The sashing fabric is very effective and adds to your quilt.
Caraline2 answered:
thank you, this is for my daughter, and is most pleased with it, once I get the label put on the back, it will be hers. There has been a lot of blood, (from my pricked finger) sweat (from being under it when I quilt, as its toasty warm) and the tears will come when it leaves me. truly a labour of blood, sweat and tears, and loads of love.
