See You Soon

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!

With getting kids and myself back into school, and going on a ladies kayak trip, I ran out of time and finished it the day after Peach Days was over.

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.
