This is a quilt that I made for my new nextdoor neighbor. She was so happy with it! She said, "Now I feel like I'm welcome here."  It's a pattern from Encyclopedia of Classic Quilt Patterns.  On the sashings between the rows of houses, I quilted "Welcome to the Neighborhood."  Her house is the next to the last one on this side of the street, so I put her house number on the next to the last house on the quilt. Below is a picture showing the backing fabric.
