There has been a lot of secret sewing around here lately.
One project that started last October and was worked around a friend's travels was this quilt.
The person in the middle is Dianne and this year she celebrated her 60th birthday. It was her travels we worked around to ensure we weren't found out. Our kitchen table group made this Arkansas Crossroads quilt, using a Hoffman jelly roll (Kiwiberry or something like that) and a creamy beige batik for the background.
I will get a better photo of the whole quilt when she comes to visit next week. After our early start on this project, it ended up a rush at the end. When it was finished, I had hubby on loose thread checking, then it was wrapped and delivered. Totally forgetting to photograph the entire quilt.
It turned out beautiful. We finished it with a border that makes it look like it floats.
There were several people hoping she wouldn't like it as they wanted to claim it, including me and hubby!
