Early Quilts (3)

Here are the last two photos of early quilts.
There were other quilts, but they got away without photos...
(Remember, these are not digital photos but scanned in to the computer from prints)
The blocks in this quilt are friendship blocks made by ladies from my church for a friend who moved over East (lovely Donna). When I was helping my friend get ready to move, I found a sample block she did with appliqued hearts on it and I sneaked it in to my pocket and put it in the quilt. She is the most excellent friend and I do miss her.

This quilt was made for a friend and work colleague (Elizabeth). She had breast cancer that recurred after a few years and she decided to move over East to be with family. I wanted something bright and cheerful for her. She has since passed away.

This pattern was from a magazine but I can't remember which one...

I enjoyed looking at all those early quilts! Good for you that you still have pictures!
Happy memories, but sad ones too. xo

I ditto Simone's comment. It's wonderful to make something special for a friend. When I first started quilting I chronicled every project with photos. Sadly somehow I lost doing that along the way.

Beautiful quilts. I think it's funny that you "stole" your friends little block.
