I've had a great friend for almost 10 years- Dani. I don't think in all those years I ever remembered her birthday. OF COURSE she's a great friend and says she doesn't care... but I do!
So this year, I was actually on top of it, and started and.... >drum roll< finished... yes, finished, a quilt in time to send to Seattle for her birthday on June 1st! Can you even believe it?! I enclosed a card that only read, "I REMEMBERED!!!"
The fabric was actually for another quilt that I decided against, then when I thought about making one for her, I realized how perfectly it fit her personality and taste.
When she got it, she texted me and gushed about how perfect it was for her, and how did I know she liked those colors so much, and her grandma quilts and this was 'BY FAR' the prettiest quilt she'd ever seen... Of course it fed my already giant ego :lol: (and sorry, grandma!) but all the same... I'm glad to know she loves it!
It was a cinch to piece the top, I did easy stitch-in-the-ditching, I used a garage sale find cheater fabric for the border, and I think it turned out nicely! Most of all I'm happy that she'll know that at least ONCE in our friendship, I remembered her birthday. Teehee!
