Quilting Friends Christmas Party

Here is the completed courthouse steps quilt, just before I wrapped it for giving. The traditional style and colors are perfect for my friend Pam T.

It is actually a lap quilt, a little small for a bed.

Here is the lovely label Debra made for the quilt using machine embroidery. A very nice finishing touch.

Today was our annual quilt exchange Christmas party. As always, it was the best party of the Christmas season, and we had a wonderful time. Pam loved her quilt. I was thrilled to have made something she is so happy with.

And here I am with the amazing beautiful quilt that my friend Gayle made for me. I was so happy I cried. She worked completely out of her comfort zone to make a quilt just perfect for me.

On this day, we all felt loved and appreciated. Quilting Friends are the best! I will post more party pictures (with quilts) in the days to come.

All quilts, both given and received are wonderful! I can hear the laughter at your party, makes me miss my group I belonged to several years ago. Glad you had a good time!

Wow, wow, wow. You sure are good friends to put this amount of work in to a gift. I think I say that every year. You all keep outdoing yourselves. I love both of these.

What pretty quilts--both of 'em! I remember you doing this last year, too. What nice friends you have.

Glad the label worked so well. Pretty quilts!
