Birthday Present





Isn't this just the sweetest quilt!!!!! The friend that started me quilting had this fabric. Everytime I saw it, I just drooled. Of course, there was none to be found. She has had it in her stash and she just finished it. I was very excited for her. She found the flannel backing down on a guild bus trip to Rainbow's End. She stopped by the bank to show me all of her current projects. She pulled out this completed quilt. I was oohing and ahhing over it and noticed that she had put a label on the back. I started to read it and about fell over from the shock. My name was on the label!!!!!!!!!!!!! She made this for my birthday. To say that I was surprised in an understatement. It is so beautiful and I just love it!!!! I had no idea. Maybe she gave it to me because I had drooled over it so much. I have it on the back of my couch and me and Bea (my black cat) have already used it. It's warm and wonderful!!!!!

What a wonderful gift! How sweet of your friend. We have a new (old) cat pattern at the quilt shop where I work and it's on my long list of want-to-do's once I finish some UFO's.
