A 50th Birthday quilt
Sanshi. As usual, I left it all way too late and in the end felt how contestants must feel on Masterchef when they hear "move away from your benches", but for me it was "move away from your sewing machine" It was 12.00 and I was due at the birthday lunch at 12.30. But the guests didn't mind that I had to cut off all the loose threads over a glass of champagne. The quilt was very well received and a surprise for its recipient. Quilts, to me, signifiy warmth, comfort and love..all the things that good friends provide. I can recognise the mishaps in the quilt but not sure its new owner ever will. My next project is a quilt for my niece's little boy. I will keep you posted on its progress.
