Amistad Chapter 11: She’s done

I’ve gone on quite enough about this simple but lovable quilt.

Time to let the pictures do the talking. She’s finished, in good time for me to enjoy her for a few days before she needs packing away. I could have waited and posted it as a Friday Finish, but well, I wanted to show it and the sun was shining and…
