Thirty!

This finish is a small one. I pieced it at my quilt retreat in January but quilted it last week, just in time to give away. I actually wrapped it before taking a photo (the horror!).

My husband delivered the quilt to a cousin at a family reunion this past weekend. I was teaching classes and could not attend, but send along this hostess gift:




The quilting in the light stripes says: "forever .... in peace.... may you wave"

The hostess' home is decorated in Americana and I knew it would look perfect. I also knew that my husband's aunt (a quilter) would understand my panic call to my husband begging him to take a photo. Those would be Aunt Marilyn's rings in the photo.

Inspired by your numbers, I counted my finishes. I am at 12 for the year. I don't see me making 50 but I now have a goal. Thanks for the inspiration. :-)
