Last year I embarked on making 40th birthday quilt for my girlfriends. There are 5 of us ladies who have been friends for over 20 years now. We are scattered across the U.S. in Boston, Denver, Phoenix, and Minneapolis. We don’t get to see each other often enough, but we make time at least once a year to get together. I decided that I would make a quilt for each of the ladies. Three of the quilts have been completed and gifted this past year while each one was still 40.
Moda Bake Shop Little Rays of Sunshine in Fig Tree’s California Girl
Cathy’s was an easy delivery being she is in Minneapolis. I see the quilt in many background photos of her new little baby boy, Simon.
Cluck Cluck Sew’s Tea Party in Bonnie and Camille’s Marmalade
Cass visited Minneapolis over Thanksgiving weekend. I called her to let her know that I had made her a quilt. This way she could bring a bigger suitcase to return home with the quilt.
Thimble Blossom’s Wild Thing in Bonnie and Camille’s Ruby
Caroline’s was sent to her in Denver via USPS. She flew into Minneapolis in December, but she always has her suitcase packed full.
I still have one left to make for Amy in Boston. Amy is still in her 40th birthday year until late September, so I still have a little time yet to make the quilt. It is definitely on my summer to-do list!
