Quilt for a Friend

I seem to be a place in my life when my friend's children are having babies so what does a quilter do?  They put a quilt together.

I was very happy with the way this one turned out. 

The pinning process - thank goodness for space on the kitchen floor . . .

It's girly, pink and cheery. 

 I did the quilting myself and am pleased with it. 

I decided that I would sew on the binding by machine instead of hand sewing it.  I was amazed and very happy with the way it came together.  

I hope the recipient enjoys this as much as I did putting it together.

Since today was valentine's day, I thought I would show you the note and flowers that my daughter delivered to me at work today.  She's very sweet and I will miss her greatly when she moves away to London, England in March.

. . . and hubby and I went to dinner and a movie.
