"Found" quilt top

My sister found this quilt top at an estate sale in a bag of fabric... she didn't realize it was in there. It's between a lap and a twin. I added the border, quilted it for her and am now binding it. She doesn't know I'm doing that (well, she didn't but if she reads this she will). Going to surprise her with it when I get back downstate in a few days.


Al and I are up north for a few days ...he needs to catch up on some work and I needed to pack Xmas away and clean. We'll be heading back down to be with Mom soon. She's in a nursing home and is pretty stable but still on a vent. We'd love to get her back home.
