    This is the kaleidoscope quilt I made for my oldest friend. We have known each other since very early years of elementary school. I forgot to take pics and had to have her send some pics. She wasn't home when I went to Idaho and I left it at her business (assisted living home). When she came back home, I emailed to see if she got it. When she said no, my heart sunk. She was at her other assisted living home for a week to relieve her workers. I emailed her and told her what the bag was like that it was in and that it was a quilt. She had by now come home and gone back to the other home. When she got back, she found it and was thrilled. All of this took about 2 1/2 weeks. Talk about relief on my part!

    That is an outstanding quilt. So creative and imaginative. How long did it take to make?

    So glad your story had a good outcome. That would've freaked me out. What dear friends you have in each other to do something like this.

    Since she barely got the outer border, you can't tell what the original fabric looks like. It is leaves, tiny blossoms, pumpkins and gourds.
