This quilt originally started as a gift for Adam when he graduated college (2004). I ran out of fabric & was unable to make it bed sized so I finished it to be a wall hanging. The fabric I used for the borders looks almost like bamboo & I love bamboo. Adam ended up using it as a wall hanging in his condo after I added a sleeve to it in 2010. It's a handsome quilt for a handsome guy. It is machine pieced & hand-quilted.
