Two Bonnie Quilts See Progress :)

 Last night I got the blue border on Smith Mountain Morning.  Next up is the outer border!  I tagged my best friend Monica on facebook and told her this one will be coming her way (it is about time she gets a quilt!) and this is what she said in response:   Andee, I saw this last night and I was speechless. I feel so blessed to have such a thoughtful, generous, and creative best friend. This quilt will be stunning in our bedroom, and I look forward to cuddling in it, especially this winter! From the bottom of my heart, thank you!  
This makes me oh so happy I have finally got just the right quilt to give to Monica.  Her birthday and anniversary are in October so with any luck I can get it out to her by then!
Then this afternoon I put the binding on Roll, Roll Cotton Boll!  I had to take the ladder outside to get pictures of it.  I am sure my neighbors think I am a nut!  I should have put shoes on because the cement was too hot to stand on!
 This quilt really has grown on me.  It was my first official string quilt and I was a bit worried about the wonkies, but in the end it is beautiful.  This one doesn't have a home yet and since it is a Bonnie quilt I am not likely to let it go too far!

It looks like a two Bonnie quilt for your too! They are both AMAZING! I am picturing you standing up on a ladder trying to get a good photo. I only stood on the coffee table to try to get mine:) Great weekend. Hope you find some time tomorrow to put on the pieced border. It is already partially pieced or are you starting from scratch.
