Here is my latest quilt - a gift for our daughter's friend Nikki. Nikki has been a good friend to our daughter for many years. They were roommates for a while and are still close. There was a birthday last week, and while I did not finish this quilt in time for that, I was close. :)
The front of the quilt is one of my favorite designs, Yellow Brick Road, but it is the back of the quilt that shows you the name I have given it. I call this quilt, "The Days of Wine and Roses". I don't usually name my quilts, but this one was singing its song to me as soon as I found just the perfect fabrics for the backing.
What do you think? Right name?
I'm really please with the way it worked itself into being. I hope she likes it!
I freehand stitched her name into the backing.
Unfortunately I did not get a picture of the birthday cake our daughter made for the birthday party on Sunday. Here's all that's left. I'm just glad she brought the remains home so I could have a piece (or two). :) It was delicious!
Speaking of perfect, these are some of my sentimental favorite houseplants - snow on the mountain. My sweetie pie grandmother had these growing all the time and I was so happy to have preserved these great-great-great (who knows how many?) grandchildren of her plants!
I love those things that make me remember happy times and places and people. I guess that must be why I love quilts so much!
Have a great day!
