The Joy of Giving

I made this quilt in 2008 for a ‘long time’ friend.
We walked home from elementary school together, shared an apartment during our first years of teaching and continue to ‘talk’ almost daily.
The pattern is, appropriately, Old Friends by Cranberry Cupboard. 

With Mary Engelbreit fabrics, it’s machine quilted and has a coordinating pillow case.

She’s celebrating a special birthday today so…..

  1. It is a great "Old Friend" quilt. The pattern and fabrics say "comfort" to me, just as an old friend does. What a thoughtful gift!

  2. How special! Great friends, great quilt . . . life is good!

  3. Wow--what a great quilt!! It does feel good to give such a wonderful gift, doesn't it?

  4. As the recipient of this quilt it was so thoughtful and as one respondant said, "it does feel good to give such a wonderful gift" feels amazing and humbling to receive this wonderful gift. I treasure it.
