Quilt for A Friend



A Friend gave me this fabric several years ago to use as I choose.
I decided to make her a quilt with it.
These are her colors and she had already cut some of the 2.5" strips.  She is a weaver not a quilter and I don't know what she had planned to do with the fabric but I guess she changed her mind.
The strips have been hanging in my sewing room all these years,  Everyday I would look at them and think of my friend.  I finally found a pattern that looks like weaving.  Now all I have to do is make the label.
I don't usually put labels on my quilts - VBG - but this one has to have one.
I hope she likes it.

Great quilt for a weaver! I bet she is surprised to see the fabrics again. I'm glad you will label it... NO LABELS on most of your quilts... tsk, tsk... there should always be a record of the maker, it makes the quilt more valuable to have a history! I actually just had a client for whom I made a memory quilt out of old clothing ask me to be sure I labeled it with my name and date because she values the story behind a quilt as much as the quilt itself. I appreciated the nudge because I wasn't sure about labeling a quilt I was paid to make for someone else. Live and learn.

I'm visiting your blog as part of the Christmas Quilt Show. Your friend will surely love this beautiful quilt, and I think a label will make it all the more personal.
