    This quilt I decided Sunday morning to put together for a friend who has been ill, had surgery, spent a week in the hospital and is now home and recovering. I was called Saturday night to see if I could bring a meal for tonight for them. I started thinking....... Well I decided to make her a quilt. I have to deliver dinner at 5:30, it is right now 4:06. I just threw it in the washer and now I have to make dinner.

    I just did a "wavy" stitch in the ditch.

    I didn't have enough time to make a label on my embroidery unit, so had to do it the old fashioned way

    Sorry, there is a little breeze blowing right now. As you can see one of my "girl" had to come check out the quilt, her name is Kea

    Thank you everyone who helped me decide which border to use. I like the way it turned out. Hopefully Jackie will like it too.
    I got this done within a week! and I had to work and other issues. Can't believe I got it done.

    Oh, By the way, my daughter landed in the good ole USA last night 8:20 California time. She is at Fort Dix in New Jersey for anywhere from a week to 2 or so. She's been gone a year. We are so excited that she is almost home. Out of Iraq!!!!!! YEA!!!! :) :) :) :) :) :)

    The colors are so soothing and calming. Just what the doctor ordered for a full recovery. That sure was some fast work.

    Hopefully these next few weeks will fly for you until you see your daughter.

    I am so so impressed!! This is a VERY pretty quilt and there's nothing like a finish under the wire! (I was up til 4 am this Friday to finish a wedding quilt for Friday night.)

    It is nice of you to bring a meal, but to bring a meal AND a homemade quilt- wow! You are a good friend!

    Very pretty! Love the colors! The Warm Wishes pattern goes together so easily, doesn't it.
