My secret project has been delivered!! So now I can share it with you! It started in September when my quilting sister-in-law Carolyn contacted me and asked if I would want to work on a project with her.
We selected a color; photographed fabrics and had great discussions back and forth on patterns etc. She mailed me strips; I mailed her strips; we each built blocks! It was great fun. Back and forth in the mail!
I had the honor of “putting all the blocks together”; and mailed them back to her for borders, backing and quilting & binding. She got the longarming done on her new machine and ensured safe delivery!
So; enjoy the process
We selected our fabrics
We built our blocks
and now the project is delivered to our sister Cathi!
We certainly surprised her! When she visited me in November, I gave her the pillows. (I told her they were leftover blocks from her Great Granddaughters quilt). Truth is; I had so many strips cut, I was able to make the great granddaught a quilt to match. She got to see that quilt BEFORE she even knew about her own! Tricky me…….I bet she wondered why I gave her those pillows…..
