    Default Surprise Quilt for a Friend

    My friend who I consider to be my adopted daughter just earned her MBA last week. I am going to surprise her with this quilt. It has taken me a while to get to it after recovering from the shingles so I told her the gift I ordered was back ordered for several months. This is the Kite Flight pattern using the fabric recommended. I thought it would be appropriate as she reaches new heights with each achievement. She is in her late 40's and recovering from a divorce after a long marriage and I am proud of all she is doing to become the woman she wants to be.

    It has been quite a challenge to keep this quilt hidden from her as she is at my house a couple of times a week. Now I just have to find the perfect backing fabric. I believe I will quilt it with a light grey thread.

    I can't get over how vibrant the colors are and your piecing is excellent.
