Sneaky Sneaky

Mom and I have been stitching a secret present


for my sister Deb for her birthday this year


it's one with a "0" on the end so it deserves special notice...


I've been sending her emails with


little sneak peeks since it won't be completed


in time to make it for her special day


right now it's at the quilters


we can't wait to see how it turns out...


hand pieced and hand appliqued


it took up most of my free time


for two months and then some...


Mom did the applique and I did the rest


except for about 20 little squares


from Loretta who want to help


(she is not a stitcher!)...


my other sister will be providing


the $ for quilting and shipping...


we make a good team




In a few weeks I'll be able to share


the finished quilt with you...


my only regret is not buying


more of that large red Moda print


(top row of 1st photo)


so if you have any you'd be


willing to part with let me know...

Oh the excitement! What a wonderful thing you are doing as a family for your sister. I can't wait to see it when it's quilted. Sorry I don't have that fabric or I'd send you some. And I was most surprised to see my little rug in your header! Of course the designer is one of my favs (miss Kelley)! Hugs, Lori

Love the close up, shows off the colors a lot better.
I got a menonite book and it has some nice simple patterns, so maybe I will start one for my bed today.
