They were surprised!


Here is Chris with her quilt. She really liked it. I explained that she had the brights because she had a bright personality. I put a lot of thought into these. The friendship stars in Chris's because we became friends over the years.

Here is Mary Lee with her quilt. I did Aunt Gracie fabrics for her because it is more traditional and Mary Lee is a more traditional girl. Nine patches just seem to fit with the 1930's fabrics (and besides, I was sick of making friendship stars.HA!) You can tell by the expressions on their face that they were surprised! They both said they would cherish them forever. That was nice. I told them they were made to be used not put on a shelf and they both agreed they would use them.

How wonderful to get those looks of joy in a picture. Pretty lucky ladies to have such a giving friend. You gave a piece of yourself to them in those quilts.

Just finding someone to cut your hair for 12 years is something to be excited about!

My first visit here, and I love surprises. You captured their responses very well. But their delight is not a surprise --- these are very lovely quilts! Great job.
