That's not what they called it, but that's what I call it! I had the surprise of my life today when my friend, Shirley popped over to my house for a short visit. She and I get together often, mostly when she's in town on errands since she lives in Siberia (which really isn't in Siberia, but about 30 minutes, way, way in the country.) We just call it Siberia, to bug her! LOL Lots of times when we get together (often with our other awesome friend, Susie,....we will bring stuff to show the others, like Shirley did today. EXCEPT, it was not really HER show and tell, it was a gift for me.......a wonderful, marvelous, most touching gift that I have ever gotten (other than my smocking pleater from my DH one Christmas when we were really broke). Shirley brought this:
It's a quilt filled with 12 inch blocks from 18 awesome woman who combined their time and talents to create a beautiful work of art filled with my favorite colors, and trees, and birds, and houses, and flying geese (I love flying geese and have never made any) that I can't get over it! I am so truly touched at the wonderfulness of it, you can't believe! Not only that, but there are two pillows to match! Again, with glorious designs and colors.
You have no idea how many of those blocks I saw on Flickr and commented on and planned on copying some day. LOL Many looked like they could have come out of my brain. In fact I was wondering how they got so much better than me so fast! And all along, they were combining them in a quilt for me. Thank you ever so much, Susan, Ruthie, Kimmie, cindy, Annie, Helen, Andrea, Julie, Flossie, Lish, Lucinda, Solidia, Kandra, Anita, Shirley (she will be featured here in a few days), Lynne, Krista, and Laura. I love it! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart! I adore it!
