    Another quilt I finished

    This quilt I am sending to a friend that is really concerned with everything going on in my life (husband sick), and always sending me well wishes and showing concern. She sends me amazon gift cards to buy books while I am at Mayo Clinic with him, etc.
    I quilted this on my long arm totally by myself. (Thank goodness my instructor wrote down the steps. )

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    You are blessed to have a friend like the one you made the quilt for! It is gorgeous; love the colors and the backing really sets it all off very nicely.

    Prayers for your husband!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    I agree with Homespun, friends like that are truly a blessing. Your thoughtful gift is a great way to express your gratitude and appreciation of your friendship. Congratulations on quilting it yourself. : )
