"Remember Me" is a Flimsy

I'd found the fabric for the border of the "Remember Me" quilt from the Prairie Women's Journey series of kits and got it sewn on.  So now this quilt is a flimsy waiting for a destination.

We have an old cane-seat nursing rocker that we've been thinking of bringing down into the living room and retiring the loveseat that is presently there.  If we do that, this little quilt would look pretty across the back.

I think it should be hand-quilted, and I am not likely to get to even starting that before truly cold weather sets in.

It feels good to have it finished to filmsy status, however.

It turned out so lovely (of course).

Bring on that cooler weather! I'm ready to do some binding (and napping).

This quilt turned out beautifully. I think the idea of draping it on the rocker is perfect. It will look great hand quilted, too.
