Just a few weeks ago, one of my best friends dropped her oldest daughter off to college. I had decided to make a her a quilt, and it seemed like it would time right. I decided to call it “See You Soon,” because I was hoping to finish it before Peach Days. I don’t always name quilts, but when you enter the Guild show they give you a form to fill out, which includes the quilt’s name. If you don’t name it, Lynette says she’ll name it for you!
This quilt was a challenge because I wanted to do an unusual border. I saved some blocks to do that, but when I put the border on it looked absolutely horrible. I ended up cutting them off. I took the center with me to JoAnn, and auditioned some fabrics with my daughter and my other friend. A random lady came by, too, and said she liked the same one everyone else had voted on.
I am really happy with it, and I hope it reminds her that we all look forward to when we’ll see her daughter again soon.
