I ended up using the brown strips for the binding that I had taken out for the quilt and used white flannel for the back and 100% cotton for the batting. Oh and a quilt that inspired me to do the straight line quilting is one that Andie did up. Thanks Andie! I think it worked great for this quilt.
Julie and I have been friends since 2nd grade. Whitney is her third girl. I'm excited for her. She and I live too far away from each other! Just want to let her know I love her and cherish all our memories we've had together!
