My DIL loved the seascape, the arms fit the chair and Ava liked her doll. All in all a successful trip. I came home late Wednesday night and had my eyes dilated on Thursday which put me out of commission for the day. Friday I worked on a Tea Topper for my friend, Chris. She has had a "Sister's Tea" with her 2 sisters, all of their daughters and soon the grands will come. They spend a whole weekend together-as an only child, I think that sounds like sooo much fun-so, I made her a topper. The plaid is because like me, my friend is Scottish (her mom was born in Scotland). I will edge it in the plaid after I quilt it on the longarm tomorrow.

I am always surprised how different a quilt can look with a change of fabric. If I make this pattern again I would use a different material for the small squares and triangles so that the pieces wouldn't melt into each other-however, when quilted and bound I think I am going to really like it.
