    Default Four Squares for four Friends

    I have worked very closely with four kind friends for the past 3 years in a volunteer position. Our term comes to an end tomorrow. I learned to quilt during our time of service, and decided two weeks ago, that I wanted to make them each a lap quilt as an expression of love and gratitude for their friendship and service. I just put the final stitches into the final quilt. The Quilting part is not my strong suit, so it is VERY simple, but I love how they all turned out, and they actually will suit the personalities of each of my friends. Enjoy.

    This one is Gumballs, for Reba, she has a very young family of boys and girls

    I tried to make them fit into each of their homes, where there are young children to cuddle with, I wanted it to be fun and whimsical. I hope they will feel the love I feel for them when they wrap up in these quilty hugs.

    They are all terrific, and a good understanding of your friends. They (and you) are very lucky!

    Quilter's Rules:
    #1 Buy fabric - no matter how much you already have.
    #2 Sew all day and all night - no cooking allowed.
    #3 Start a new quilt before the last one is finished - must return to #1.

    What a wonderful way to express your love for the people with whom you've worked. What's your next 'job' going to be?

    Not sure yet, well see what our Bishop (equivalent of a pastor or minister) wants me to do. . . I'm hoping for the Nursery!

    Very pretty and what sweet gesture. I'm sure they will all be very touched and will love their quilts forever. Excellent work on them and don't apologize for the quilting...you did great!
