A Quilt for my work wall

My bestest, sweetest, most awesome friend, April, made me a quilt for my “new” office. I really can’t remember how it came about that she started making me the quilt…LOL!…but I love it. Very bright, very cheery, very April.

It’s from a pattern I saw on Connecting Threads…I made one out of Lila Tueller’s EDEN by just looking at the picture. April bought the pattern and did a much nicer job than I…”Oh look! Everything lines up!” She used Lila Tueller’s Santorini fabric line…Lila’s fabric is so flipping cheerful, eh?! The backing is from Lila’s Soirée line. She made a Flying Geese border by using a One Seam Method. It’s about 41″x52″…will cover a large chunk of my wall. 🙂

Now I just have to get that puppy up on the wall. I have two wooden quilt hangers that I brought in, but wanted to show them to my sister’s boss first (she’s woodworker and thought that she could probably make me a bunch more).

THANK YOU APRIL FOR A MOST EXCELLENT GIFT! 🙂

    Oh my friend you are MOST welcome! I am SO glad you like it! Vibrant colors from Lila Tueller… it had to be yours. 😉

    Absent your wood hanging thingies, perhaps you can just have that person stand in your office all the time, holding it up?

    P.S. Things don’t really line up all that well LOL!
