Quilt With Us

Good evening quilters.  Last Sat. evening, the girls gave me my retirement gift.  I retired from the fabric store last Feb. 10th.

This is a picture of it.


Each of the girls made a block and the one lady that is an experienced quilter put it together and quilted it.

Since I really like cats, they have used a lot of cat fabric in it.

It measured 54"wide X 64" long and I have it hanging in the small bedroom.

It is a very beautiful quilt and I will always treasure it.

What a treasure! It shows how much your co-workers value your service and friendship.

Happy quilting.

Thankyou ladies for all of your comments.  I have quite a stash all in a basket of colours that I like to use.

I took a picture of the quilt hanging up and I am going to take it in and have each person sign their name on the block that they made.

I will be back in the store lots to properly carress all the fabric that I like.  Yes, the three cat faces were machine embroidered.

I will always treasure my quilt.

What a thoughtful way to express how much they think of you and enjoyed having you work with them. Now you can quilt. Did you by chance increase your stash when you were working? It's a beaitiful quilt and I'm sure that you will always treasure it.
