The last time I shared with you about Debbie's quilt the top was finished, the backing was ordered, and I was getting ready to mail it off to my quilter friend, Shirley Jackson. The pantograph and thread choices are perfect for this quilt. But, of course. Shirley always does a beautiful job.
In 2017 Debbie asked me to make her a new quilt because the one I had made for her 36 years earlier was worn out, I was more than happy to. That's why this quilt will no longer be known as "Debbie's Quilt", but rather "Because You Asked". (I'm not usually any good at naming quilts, but I like this name!)
This is my first finish for 2019.
I was excited to be able to make a trip to St. Louis recently to gift it in person. Partly because it weighs a ton, and I didn't want to mail it.
Mostly because I wanted to see Debbie's face and bask in the glow of her love and admiration. Not really. I just wanted to love on her a little bit. I don't get to see her often enough.
So, it's finally in Debbie's arms. Seriously. It's probably actually in her arms this very minute. She was so happy when I gave it to her the other evening I feel certain she's yet to let it go.
