My bff moved to Pittsburgh! I assembled a couch quilt for her. Its just the right size for her and her hubbs to watch tv on the couch, snuggled- of course. The Amish themed quilt blocks were made by the super great ladies of the Southwest (Altus) Oklahoma Quilt Guild for a block of the month. That month, I totally won!!! And yeh, it was a WHILE ago. But if you save something long enough... you'll find the perfect end use for it. Hum... I think that would fit really well on the Hoarders show.
Anywhoo- I did get around to adding 12 blocks into an nice on-point design and I've sent it off to my mom to be quilted. The quilt should be completely finished by her birthday in mid-December.
So its a little cliche- send an Amish style quilt block to a girl that moved to Pennsylvania- but who cares. I'm not one to get all caught up in "proper" gift giving themes and all.
This is also my entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted over on Amy's Creative Side.
Updated to add- I'm actually at quilt market, so if you want to see some of the latest goings-on, check out the ReannaLily Designs Facebook Page.
