I feel real positive that when you are making something for someone you think good thoughts all while creating the object. Thus infusing it with your love/regard for the person.
The border came from my stash. Old, old, old...so old that I know I washed and starched it before folding it away years ago. And I sure made a mess digging it out of it's stack when I spyed the corner of it. It has the blues and tans that are in the blocks. It is perfect. All the selvedge says is "The Alexander Henry Collection" with a copywright sign, no year or design #.
The measurement of this quilt is 70"X 85". Perfect for my home quilting frame set-up.
