Below is the quilt that I finished while at the cape. I bought the pattern in 1995 and my husband made the blocks in 1996. He wanted to try quilting so he came down to my sewing room a few times and worked on this. He traced every piece of the pattern (12 blocks total) and cut them out. He chose all the fabric - he did an excellent job considering the choices I had for fabrics then ! He was able to get 5 blocks ready for applique. I don't know what happened but we never went back to finish the blocks. I felt a little guilty leaving again so soon after Houston and it was his birthday on Sunday (the day I was due home from the cape) so I snuck the blocks out of the house and finished it for him! I was a little worried that he would be disappointed that I finished it for him. He was thrilled! He said it was the nicest quilt I had ever made. I really felt rushed to finish it because I hadn't planned on working on this during the get a way weekend. I had plans to finish my brown and jade bed quilt and to start my next art quilt.
This is it's new home. I thought he would want to hang it in his office by he wanted to enjoy it (and he can show it off when someone comes over). I hung it in the front hall. I also hung my Slice House Quilt in a new spot. When I took it down from over the mantel I filled the open spot with art work and more plates. I like the new spot because it isn't in sunlight but it seems a little cramped.
I am really looking forward to this weekend ~ it's my 25 class reunion. I have only been in touch with a few people from high school so this will be really fun to see everyone. I have been in touch with a few friends recently on facebook. That has been fun and if you don't have a facebook I suggest you get one. You are never too old to reconnect with friends and family.
