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! 🙂

Friendship Award

My friend and fellow crafter gave me a Friendship Award for my blog ~ 🙂 Thank you DONNA!

Pass it on to five other bloggers and include the “award” photo and the following pre-written text:

“These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to those bloggers who must choose at least 5 more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

Hmmm…not really sure where this originated (I wouldn’t say it’s cleverly-written, but I like the intent and will make up my own Friendship reasoning!) ~ but here goes my five blog picks!

1 ~ NEVADA OUTSIDE ~ I pick Kurt for his love of Nevada and her wilderness! What better friend for our lovely state?

2 ~ APRIL'S ATELIER ~ because April is a GREAT FRIEND! 🙂 Love you!

3 ~ DIOSA DOMESTICA De La LOCURA ~ Well, Penny is one of my new Crazy Friends. 🙂 Life is certainly more interesting knowing she’s out there in this great big world!

4 ~ MENNONITE GIRLS CAN COOK ~ I’m sorry…but what says friendship more than a bunch of ladies that share their favorite recipes with you?! And for GOODNESS SAKES! There is a WHOOPIE PIE COOKIE recipe today!!!

5 ~ BLAZE DANIELLE ~ Blaze is a sweetie who shares her artwork with the rest of us.
