Sigh, I can't wait to see the quilt in person. It looks amazing.
Fun tag! :) Thank you for tagging me. There's something odd about not liking pizza, Melinda. I gotta tell you! :D

I love the quilt you made!! The bunny is so darn cute.

I was skimming down and saw my name and now you have me teary eyed. Thanks for saying such nice things about me and Lexie! We are a lot alike, except, I LOVE pizza!! Liver.....well, that's just gross...but, pizza, yummy!
