Maureen and I have known each other since our twin boys were teeny tiny babies. We formed a play group when my boys were 6 weeks old and hers were three months old. Our families have been friends ever since. I have been wanting to make her a quilt for a long time. But my quilts tend to choose their owners and I have had to wait until one claimed her. This one did. It is a triangle pattern using a Moda charm pack I had left over. The boarder is fabric I found at Joann's. The binding is quilt binding. I stippled the quilt using a loop pattern.
I was trying to be very Home and Garden when I used props to take my photos. I also wanted to give Maureen an idea of the size and what the quilt could be used for. Most people are afraid to use the quilts I give them because they don't want to mess them up. But I have found that they wash well and usually just need spot cleaning.
I think this quilt can be used for tea or perhaps as a centerpiece on a table. Maureen and I don't have much time for tea as we both work full time and have busy little boys. But I know she will find a use for it. And maybe it will give us an excuse to get together and have tea, while our kids run around tearing up the house!
