FINALLY, I have a finish this week (month, year, decade, lol). OK, decade is probably a bit of an overstatement, but let's face it, it has been a very long time since I've had an all-the-way-done FINISH.
When my friend Lois gave me all the fabric she no longer wanted from her years of clothing and what-not projects, I'd laundered it all, fiber tested and tallied up the yardage and pieces and it equated to over 52 yards! That's a lot of fabric to give away, so I decided I'd make her a quilt. That was in September 2006. It only took me 6.5 years to get it done. Yikes!
We've been friends since the early to mid-90's and have spent many hours (in the past) hiking, back-packing, camping, camp-cooking and enjoying God's Creation on numerous outings. Many of the fabrics depict the outdoors so it makes a great memory quilt for her. These days, she still gets out more than I do for these outings. Lois also house and pet sits for us if Marty and I are gone any part of the summer at the same time.
