Another Friday, another finish. I will probably never have this many Friday finishes in a row ever again. I started this quilt back this summer and it will always remain one that I cherish the memories I made while making it. My Mammaw helped me iron, and piece all the blocks, my Grandma sat and talked to me while I cut it, and even my Pappaw ironed and sewed a few blocks. I’ll always treasure these memories and I’m so glad that I’ll be sending this quilt off this weekend. My mom asked me to make this for a wonderful family friend who celebrated her 75th birthday this past February. At the time I had not made a finished quilt, so I’m glad my mom trusted that I would eventually learn!
I’m so glad I finished this quilt in the fall. It was meant to be photographed in the changing leaves!
Here’s an up close look at the quilting:
It took me forever to decide how to quilt this one, and my husband came to the rescue with the large X idea. Thanks, boo.
I can’t wait to mail this off this weekend, and I’m linking Big Red up to all the Friday Linky Parties 🙂
