Here's the other side.
It's reversible. MJ showed us this easy last month at Stashbusters. The quilt is made from two 42" squares of a symetrical stripe fabric (one that has a line of symetry -- you can fold the fabric on that line and all the stripes will line up on themself). You put them RST and stitch on the diagonal to make two half-square-triangles. Then you put those RST to make two quarter-square-triangles. You do need to be careful to line up the stripes at all times.
I used a coordinating circle print for the thingies on the edge (sort of like prarie points, but not). I lined them with fusible fleese, folded the circles in half and stitched.
They were inserted before stitching around all edges with the batting too, and turning it right-side-out. Some call it birthing or pillowcase method. The quilting was done last.
Now to figure out how to label it. There is no wrong side to put that on. Still thinking on that one. Maybe I will quilt it in, or embroider it on. Hmm...........
DH asked if we are giving her sun glasses too! Geesh!
