For a special friend indeed

I have been talking AND talking about this "quilt" that I am piecing---then sandwiching and then quilting.  OH and then binding.  Well this has gone on long enough in my book so here is the big reveal.  Just been putting it off because the person whom is receiving this quilt, that I am sooo very proud of, doesn't actually get it until next month.  Still top secret stuff, but I couldn't help myself, hope she doesn't figure it out;)

The quilt top looking all pretty:) approx. 35"x37" wall hanging
see the pockets for some photos or cards---very nice!

Don't you just love the colors here---so calming to me!!

Hand embroidery for the curvy lines
stitch in the ditch in a matching dark blue Sulky thread
my hubby's idea for the backing!
This quilt is very special to me because it is for such a very special lady to me:)

Blanket stitched to the back

Woweee!!!  I got through it and I am feeling that great feeling inside, to say the least, that this gift is going to make a certain someone feel VERY blessed!!! 

May you feel this blessed as you quilt  for someone you dearly love and cherish:)

Take care,

what a fun quilt! I do love those calming colors. Blues and greens together always work for me. Love all those extra details you added too. What a lucky friend to receive this one.

I love your pockets and the blues. My favorite color!! I like your curves in the stitching. The quilt turned out beautiful.
