A small finish…….

This is a 30” sq. table topper that was amongst the stash from my friend Alice. She had pieced, sandwiched and pin-basted it in preparation for a “someday” finish. That finish came yesterday afternoon when I stitched a graceful “swirly vine” motif and added the binding and label. This will find its way to a mutual friend’s home in MA (where we spent several days on our recent trek). This couple, together with DH and I, were Friday nite coffee-ers at Alice’s home every week for many years. Such sweet times together! Jean was one of our original members in the local quilt group I go to (as was Alice). I thought this little remembrance would be a much-loved addition to Jean & Ed’s home. 014017019

It sure does a body good to be able to pick up and complete a project in  quick fashion, hmmmmm?

    Looks great. I agree the quilting is the perfect finish for such a special project. It is good you have been able to bring Alice’s work to life and to share it with another of her friends.

      It is comforting to touch something that I know my friend once put together and such a privilege to pass it along to another sweet mutual friend. This has been quite a year!!! Thanks so much for stopping by, dear Friend…….

  8. Great looking table topper! Yes, it always feels good to finish up an UFO. Love your quilting always. By the way, I live in MA. Won’t it be nice you visit us sometime while you’re here. Alice? That name sounds familiar, is she part for BMQG?
