I took a week off from work last November to move and get settled and use up some vacation time before the end of the year. Oooo. Can I just say? And I know all you quilters out there know how delicious it is to sew in the winter compared to the summer....
...It was magical...
Anyway, so I had moved and had all this extra space to spread out and leave my projects out in the open. My dining room is my sewing room. I should probably get a dining room table for when I have friends over, but it all ends up working out.
What was I saying?
I made this quilt for some dear dear friends. A bunch of us signed the edges of it with thanks and love notes. It has a permanent home on their bed. I love this fabric because it reminds me of the friends. I've been able to add a splash of it here and there in other projects for friends.

|Ha! Wine glass on the ironing board. I must have been finished for the night.|
|I didn't do a traditional border, I layered it, sewed it inside out, and then flipped it. I found bobby pins helpful instead of pins. It came out to be 90"x90".|
|On the table, ready for signatures in fabric marker.|
