    We went to dinner and when we met up with our friends, they presented to me 3 quilt books

    Encyclopedia of designs for quilting
    Lap quilting with Georgia Bonesteel
    Better Homes and Gardens Creative American Quilting

    I was very surprised and very happy. I told my hubby that I would like to make them something. He suggested a lap quilt

    I actually told, DH that I was going to make them a lap quilt. I am working now,on my 1st bagello, but, I am making just same size square one. I am not all that exp, and with each quilt I attempt, I go a little more difficult, if not blocks then design, and believe me, this is sure a challenge

    It is great to meet with friends for an enjoyable evening. Then to be surprised like that, they really love you and are always thinking of you. What super friends they are, and they know that you are
    also a great friend to them. Enjoy the feeling, and the lap quilt is a great idea!! :lol:
