They also made the checkerboard border--and not one of them opted to leave it out! Great work girls! And now, here are the pictures of THEIR work:
Isn't it great? I always get such a thrill when my students--and new friends--take one of my patterns and turn it into a quilt that is uniquely their own. I think they were quite successful, don't you?
