Vicki's "Quilty R & R"


Good secretaries are to be greatly appreciated.  My Sweet Adorable Hubby has had some excellent secretaries throughout his career, the most recent being Vicki.   Seems their work relationship is ending because of some restructuring within the company so he asked me to make her a quilt to express our gratefulness.   He really likes his quilt that I made from the "Habitat" pattern and he wanted me to make a similar quilt for Vicki.   Of course, I had to use batiks, and this time I managed to use over 100 different fabrics.  (Not a great idea.  When Sweet Adorable Hubby said, "That's a LOT of batiks!" I realized I was  -- BUSTED!)  Anyway.....Here is Vicki's quilt which we call "Quilty R & R."





















We gave it to her at lunch last week, and I'm pretty sure she loves it!!  
















Now if she will just "light somewhere" as Sweet Adorable Hubby says and enjoy it.  She's a busy gal!

That quilt is gorgeous. I love all 100 of those batiks and besides,you can tell hubby that many of them were just scraps. Will he believe you? LOL. I think Vicki looks like she really likes it and seems so surprised. You did good.

Thank you for all your kind comments, everyone. In my opinion, you can never go wrong with batiks!
