Tarheel Quilt for my BABY!

I love my Tarheel stitching group! They made me this fabulous quilt. They all stitched up the different squares and the one among us who quilts very well put them all together. I gave them the theme (backyard critters) and they ran with it. They presented me with the quilt this past saturday. There are 20 squares all told, to see more detail and who stitched each one just click on the photo...that will take you to all the pictures (there are 4 closeups) Note that the Squirrel...a Prairie Schooler, was stitched by a recent tarheel ex-pat, Margaret...and one of my online blogging friends Megan.

Oh I LOVE the turtles! The entire quilt is terrific. I'm so glad that I/we got to stitch for you! I figured that you'd think that the group effort by Megan and me was cool even if no one else knows her!
