Fond Farewell

One of my quilting group’s favorite members moved from the beautiful north to the beautiful south recently. The ladies in the group did not want to let this momentous event pass without making a little signature quilt for our dear friend. We chose fabrics we knew Sharon would love and we kept it simple. Three inch Rail Fence blocks with signatures and memento inscriptions in the light colored center patches. All her local quilting friends signed and several of Sharon’s favorite quilt shops and quilting camps were inscribed. We thought the result was sweet if not quite as sweet as Sharon:

Sharon, we will miss you, but hope to keep in touch via the phone and internet!

    I talked with Sharon last week and they are settling in to their new home. She said this little signature quilt means so much to her. Beautiful quilting, Joyce, really finished it off. Lillian

    A charming farewell quilt and that map fabric on the back is wonderful too. New or from your stash? I have a daughter that loves maps.

    Thank you for your comment, Sue. The fabric was from the Patisserie Collection by Fig Tree & Co for Moda. I think it came out in 2008 or 2009.
