Friday finish -- Emily

When I was pregnant with my daughter, I had a friend who was pregnant at the same time. Our daughters were born 3 months apart. We kept each other company, and kept each other sane.

Unfortunately, my friend and her family moved nearly 3,000 miles away when the girls were in pre-school. My husband and I visited them once out there, and they visited us once back here. We didn't stay in close contact, but we knew where to find each other.

A few years ago, this family moved again: now they live less than 200 miles away! Since I travel for my job, I stop and see them whenever I'm in their area. It's been incredibly sweet to re-kindle our friendship.

Since my daughter graduated from high school last year, it didn't surprise me much that my friend's daughter graduated the same year. Even so, I didn't get her quilt finished in time.

Only one year late, I bring you Emily's quilt:

She likes orange. Can you tell?
