I want to rejoin the blogging world……so, I loaded the WordPress app on my phone so hopefully adding photos will be easier.
The quilt above was pieced by Julie Sefton of Me and My Quilts…. The 9-patches were from my parts department that she selected when Julie and Lynne of Patchery Menagerie came to St Louis for Lynne’s lecture and workshop for my guild.
Julie used her creativity and great use if saturated color and made this fabulous top. Then she asked if I would like it. ABSOLUTELY!!! Julie even sent binding and backing fabric! I quilted it on Sophie, used a different saturated green binding (I’m sure Julie would approve) and waited. I knew this quilt was destined for a special person at the perfect time.
And here’s the picture of the quilt in action…..covering a friend resting after surgery. Her favorite color is green so it’s perfect, right? Thank you Julie for allowing me to brighten my friends day.
For me, the joy of quilting is magnified when giving a quilt to the perfect person.
Happy Quilting! Cherie
What a special gift (twice over!!) I’m pretty sure that I wouldn’t EVER be able to part with a quilt that I got from Julie. You must REALLY love that friend the quilt is now comforting!
How absolutely wonderful!!!
I love it! As soon as I saw your photo and the title of your post, I knew Julie was the person you collaborated with. What a great gift for your friend. I totally get how giving quilts as gifts makes you feel.
That’s a double hug for your friend! (And how perfect that the cats are helping her cuddle with the quilt!)
No doubt that quilt helped to speed your friend’s recovery. 🙂 It’s such a happy quilt!
