Itty Bitty Quilt Gift

My long time friend came over for some quilting this past Monday. Look at what she brought me!

This is a tiny little quilt using Jo fabrics, washed, dried and crinkled. It is one of the Lori Smith patterns "Fit to be Framed". I love it and more importantly the friendship we share. Thanks buddy.

I can't believe it - I have almost the exact same quilt. Jill gave me windham scraps and I made a little brick quilt - wait til she's this.
It's such a sweet gift!

Some of the most simplest patterns make the best quilts. I love it when a quilt is washing and wrinkled. Was sewing and the quilt a birthday gift. You must have been in heaven getting that.
