Aunt Green is getting quilted

Are we excited. Yes indeed we are. Aunt Green has finally made it to the quilting machine. Such a pity we wont be able to enjoy it completed for long. It is off to Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Museum for a three month holiday. We hope all our lovely American quilters will enjoy it while it is there.
