Backing, chocolate, and zig zag

Last evening a friend stopped over to bring me the backing she had bought for this quilt. I forgot to take a picture of the backing for you, but it was a very nice piece of fabric, dark maroon with a little print. This quilt means a lot to her as it was made by her Grandmother. It is going to take some serious work to quilt this as it is hand pieced very poorly. It must have been one that she did late in her life, because I saw another double wedding ring quilt she had done and it was beautifully done.

She also brought me this present.

The bag was full of chocolate from Germany, Belgium, Austria, and Cleveland.

I dug out some fabric to make two pillowcases.

And I got a bit more quilting done on the zig zag quilt.
