A Quilt Gift!

I had a wonderful day today at a very dear friend's house. She and her husband's 12 year anniversary is tomorrow and they recently bought a new house and had the housewarming party today. My 14 year old daughter and I were in their wedding (I was the Maid of Honor and Samantha was a lovely little flower girl). Jen is also my daughter's godmother. Although we don't get together as often as we used to we are still great friends and have a wonderful time whenever we see each other.

So I knew that I wanted to give them a quilt as a housewarming gift but just ran out of time to whip something up. So as I was going thru the quilts that I have finished over the last year or so I found one that I just love and knew that it would be a perfect choice for them. So I tossed it in the wash last night and labelled it this morning and Jen LOVES it!

Quilts are just wonderful gifts!

there's an idea!! I have lots of tops that I loved making, but have no home for them. I like the idea of saving them for "just in case" situations!

It's a beautiful quilt!

Whoa, no wonder she loved it!! It's beautiful!! One of these days I have to make me a Snails Trail....really lovely gift!

I like the idea of giving a quilt to those special occasions. The gift is especially nice if the person who receives the quilt knows that you made it personally. Those quilts are one of a kind. Distinctive! Will make a post about quilts on my blog.

That's what I'm making all of these quilts for -- so that I have finished projects ready whenever I need them!

Great quilt. What lucky recipients!

Kathy Wagner said...

Say what?!? You just happened to have an unclaimed, finished quilt waiting??!! That's amazing... and the quilt is gorgeous!

Sarah Nopp said...

I think it is amazing you have a bed sized quilt just hanging out, waiting for a home. You are very generous!

Kim said...

Rhonda said...

Snail Trail is a wonderful pattern. I love that quilt!

ROZ said...

Marvellous, darks with white! The pattern really sparkles.

You are really generous and your friend is so lucky! I have never given my quilts away. They are just too precious to me. I guess people who want them will have to wait until they read my will. :-)
