Wendy is a quilter, and if you check out her blog you'll see the gorgeous work she does. My lack of sewing skills (other than baby bankets) and my zero knowlege of quilting made this a difficult project for me, and I was so worried it wouldn't be good enough. I used a gold colored twisted rope-like pillow edging around the sides of the quilt, then took yarn in a color that matched the peacock blues, and pulled and knotted yarn pieces throughout the quilt in order to keep the batting in place. Wendy loved it, as well as all the other things I made and sent to her in the swap box of goodies. I am so glad I gave my very first quilt project to her...she so deserved it!
