Quilts Are Meant For Giving

Last October, one of my dearest friends had a wedding.  As soon as I heard that she was engaged, I knew that I would make the soon-to-be happy couple a quilt.  I mean, quilts definitely make great gifts, especially to those that appreciate the time and effort that goes into them. 

  


Unfortunately, time got away from me, as it always does, and bits have been scattered all over my studio for months.  Yet, that all changed this past weekend when I got down to business and finally finished the quilt.




My friend knows that I was making them something; but I never came right out and said what it was.  Considering that this quilt is definitely late by my standards, although within the (1 year grace period), I hope it was worth the wait.
  









The design is based off of Elizabeth Hartman's Xylophone quilt from her book

Quilt Details:  65" x 68"
Fabrics: Kona Cotton "Putty" + various other fabrics from my stash

Happy Monday !!
