Besides the usual "Quilt for Hire" routine, I had agreed to custom build 2 quilts for former classmates. Because of Facebook they had seen examples of my work and had inquired about the possibility of making custom quilts.
This first one was decided upon early in October but was to be made and delivered at the very last minute before Christmas as a surprise gift. The fabrics were picked by the recipients Mom ( dyed with this project in mind)via secret Facebook messages and photos, as was the entire process .Each stage of creation was documented and she was excited to be able follow along with the progress.

It was really great to get reacquainted with my old friend and classmate!We realized we had not seen each other since once a long long time ago at the grocery store when her daughter was just a pre-schooler and before then, High School graduation! We both felt and agreed because we had been friends, the meaning, the making and the gifting of the quilt was even more special for the both of us!
