When I was in Holland a few years ago, Heidi helped me put this together. I took the fabric and the pattern came in squares. She told me how much of each fabric to bring. When I got home, I added the border. Now, I have the back ready, and the batting. I went to Joanns yesterday to buy batting and while there, I bought quilting needles and thread. The backing fabric is part of eight yards I bought to make civil war dresses when Mandie was involved. I never used it. I have an entire Amish bedroom, so I need to JUST DO IT, my theme song, and put it on my bed.
