Quilt love

It’s been ages since I last blogged which is mainly down to having a new job, which is nice a busy on the 3 days I work, but sadly not allowing for lunch time blogging. Then in the evenings I’ve been getting that change of the season hibernation feeling where I just want to snuggle up and fall asleep on the sofa in front of Masterchef with the Mr.

However, despite this I managed to finish the quilt I’ve been working on for the past couple of months and yesterday I handed it over to its intended owners, my oldest and dearest friend Shanthini at her wedding to the lovely Marc.

Shan and I were born on the same day and our parents met in the beds next to each other while waiting to give birth. Ever since we’ve had a very special relationship, I’d say one of unconditional sisterly comfort with each other. So it was really important for me to give her something meaningful for one of the most important days of her life. My hope is that the quilt will become a family heirloom and keep her, Marc and their family warm for years to come.

She likes it!

 I loved making the quilt and it has spurred me on to get out my half-finished Christmas quilt and get working on it. Want to take bets on if it will be ready for Christmas 2011?
