Christmas, Friendship, Gift, Quilts

One more gift to show…

Ok …this is the quilt that
wasn’t supposed to be…:0)
I intended to make a nice and sweet quilt a la the ones I showed
you in the last posts…
BUT…
this little quilt wanted to be born!!

I said earlier that I wanted to make a gift for Shirley
and I showed her gift to me here
and this day I had a clear thought on what to make…
but I also had told myself to
“GO WITH THE FLOW”

so with that in mind I entered my sewing room…
looking for a nice pink fabric…
But…I stumbled on a pretty
turquoisepurplegreen
flower fabric from my stash…
Grabbed that one…with a smile …
added a greenwhitedotty fabric…
and started to sew…
Thoughts kept coming…
wonder if Shirley likes brights…hmmm….
Well…
I just kept on sewing
and when I were going to add what was going to be in the middle…
Nope…the quilt told me….
You should add this instead…
little messages…from our shared days…
and so I did!
Out with my letter stamps and textile colour…
…I added words…

Ahhh…it’s so busy and crazy…
Shirley needs to wear sunglasses when looking at it…I thought!
So I mailed her and warned her…:0)

Brave as she is…she wouldn’t let me make something else!!!

So I kept adding my words and some fun little crocheted circles
that I had made earlier to mend my jeans…
they matched perfectly!

Mailing her again…and asked if she had changed her mind…
Nope…she hadn’t…:0)
So off it went to live in Great Britain

Looking at the pics afterwords…
It doesn’t seem to be that bright and totally haphazard …and crazy…
Just a little..:0))

So that’s my story of a quilt
that wasn’t supposed to be
but insisted to BE!!!

  1. I didn't need sunglasses and it isn't crazy and what is more it is so beautiful, thoughtful and personal and, lots of ands, it is beautiful. Very much like the beautiful spirit that made it for me. I love it.

  2. Shirley is so lucky to have such a gorgeous quilt made especially for her. The words are perfect and the colours are just so cheerfull. Looking at it will make her happy for sure.

  3. those are the best kind of quilts, what a very fun & personal quilt it is, i'm sure she will cherish it forever……love your word for 2013, i think i've been feeling that too…… enjoy, quilt, stitch for ME!
