a good friend

A few years ago I fell in love with quilting.
I started in making quilts for everyone on
every occassion!!
Well, you can guess that I run into these
old friends on occassion.
I ran into one today!
This little 2'x3' wall hanging lives in my
mother-in-law's bedroom. So I seldom see it!
When I saw it today...
I thought...
"Well, hello friend. We spent a lot of time together, didn't we?"
I hand appliqued it and hand quilted it.
So it wasn't a rush job.
There are the quilts that live with us
that we see every day.
And there are those quilts that are JUST as special
that we bump into only now and then.
BUT they're all good friends.

  3. Fiesta- This is not a pattern. I cut some background added the border and then appliqued away!

  5. I know what you mean, its fun to see them again isn't it, the old friends? Sometimes I see bags that I've made for friends and they'll be threadbare and wore out, so I know they've been loved and used!

    the thought of doing applique is daunting to me... but your tree is lovely enough to make me want to try an applique.....
